The Omniverse Launch Writing Contest — $500



And the winner of The Omniverse Launch Writing Contest is writtenbymandy for the short story “Spit Tour”. Congratulations!

Thank you everyone for joining The Omniverse and contributing to help bring in 150+ new pieces of original content!

While contests and giveaways will become a staple of The Omniverse experience, we hope you’ll still find it a pleasure to publish your works here even in-between those times.

This first contest was very much an introductory one, where we wanted you to get accustomed to the values and everyday “write whatever you like in your own voice” attitude of The Omniverse.

Future contests and giveaways will steadily become more and more specific until the point where we’ll start throwing some really bizarre and fun challenges your way, possibly even with multiple challenges going on at once with a variety of prizes.

Stay tuned for more just around the corner and in the meantime, keep on writing!

Thank you.

Anyone who writes an article here on The Omniverse during the month of July 2015 will have a chance to win $500. It’s that simple.

Considering we only just launched into our journey of searching the Omniverse, we’re a little late to the game and need to get to building some content like yesterday, and nothing gets the juices flowing quite like a good ol’ fashioned contest!

How to Enter

  1. Register
  2. Write and Publish a New Article (about any topic you want)
  3. Retweet the Contest

    (or share the contest over another social media site)

This is a contest for all people, not just “writers”. If you know something about anything and are able to write, you can enter.

  • Write about a funny pet story.
  • Write about what you like to eat and share a recipe.
  • Write about bad work experiences.
  • Write about your goals.
  • Write about what you believe in.
  • Write about what you don’t believe in.
  • Write about otherworldly experiences with the unknown.
  • Write about anything.

The available categories are laid out like so:

Fiction — Only fictional content.
Poetry — Only fictional or nonfictional content in the style of poetry.
Creative Nonfiction — Only nonfictional content in a creative style, that for example might be in story form and confuse some readers who are looking for informational articles on various topics.
Nonfiction — All other categories are for nonfiction articles.

On August 1st, 2015 we’ll pick the article we like most, announce the winner, and email the winner to get their information for payment. Again, we’re picking the article we like most, not the author. So just like any other day of the year on The Omniverse, you can write as much as you like on as many topics as you like.

The only criterion is to write what you know, in your own voice, and from the heart!

And of course we expect you to follow the Guidelines.

Have fun and good luck!
