Do you like Drama, but you don’t haven’t published anything yet? Do you want to write, but you are a few words kind of person? Well, this is your chance to ‘kill two birds’ with a single pen. In this month dedicated to the Drama category, we launched a new contest in honor of this genre and micro-stories. We consider that micro-stories are currently an effective, brief and very interesting way to tell a story, especially to writers and readers who have a disperse attention.
The contest consists in writing a Drama micro-story with a maximum of 250 words.
But what is the exact definition of Drama in writing?
It is a literary genre that is based on a conflict. And this conflict could be personal, romantic, criminal, familiar, universal or even real.
The BEST MICRO-STORY - the most original, creative and interesting - will be the WINNER. And of course, it must be correctly written with good spelling and grammar.
At the same time, we will also reward the MOST POPULAR MICRO-STORY, according to the 'likes' on Instagram or Facebook.
