Rapunzul Writing Contest

on April 5, 2011

Sarah LaPolla posted on Glass Cases that fairy tales are hot right now. She mentioned fairy tales were a big conversation at the recent Bologna Book conference. Sarah posted some good tips for writing stories based on fairy tales.

Then, I discovered this fairy tale contest which looked like it might be fun to enter:

From Enchanted Conversations Magazine: We promised a contest for this issue, and here it is! Your task is to do a retelling of “Rapunzel” in 2,000 words or less or write a poem. The normal rules for submissions guidelines apply in terms of content. You must also be a follower either through the Google system at left, or on Twitter. There is no fee to enter.

Up to four winners will be chosen — stories and poems in any combination. The prize is a $35 Amazon gift certificate for each winner.

The contest starts at 11:59 p.m. on April 1, EST, and ends at 11:59 p.m. April 8, EST.

Here’s a link to “Maiden in the Tower” story types, to help inspire you.
