Movellas Writing Talent Show!

Movellas Talent Show

Hone your writing skills in a brand new kind of competition... 


Do you have a talent for writing? Think you got what it takes to win the first ever Movellas Writing Talent Show? Why not join and see?


Welcome to the first ever Movellas Writing Talent Show! You may be wondering what a writing talent show is. Well, it’s very much like a talent show, only one that showcases your own writing skills. It is Oscar (and Movellys) season, and if you're left wondering how you can get some recognition too, this competition is a great way to start the new year off with some serious writing. 


...It starts out like any other talent show - with an audition story. If you pass through the "audition," then comes the hard part. There will be rounds and in each round, there will be a theme to follow.


The best part is not just that the Movellas team will help decide who wins, but also that the Movellas community with the help of the readers will determine the stories and movellians who will move on to the final round.



How to Participate

*Since this is the "audition" part of the talent show, everyone who wants to enter will write a short story from whatever genre they feel comfortable with. This is so we can see your writing style. Whoever makes it to the next round (a total of ten) will then get to write on the genre of their choice using the theme we'll announce once auditions are through.


You all have a month to write your audition story. After this deadline, the Movellas team will decide on the 10 writers for the next round and the ambassadors will put together a blog announcing the theme that must be a central part of the next round of entries.


Afterwards, there will be a blog post where you all decide who moves on to the final round of the talent show, which will be the top five. From there, we will pick our three talented winners, just like in an actual talent show!




Winning entries will be shared on Movellas' social media (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.)


1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will receive medals with their username/entry engraved and a movellas blue ribbon on which to display it :) along with a papella (paper copy) of the story of their choice!



Good luck to all those competing! We're looking forward to see what writing talent is in store in the upcoming stories...
