Story In A Bag Contest
Are you a published writer, a frustrated writer, a closet writer, or would just like to see if you can create a story out of bag?
If you answered yes to any of these questions (or if you're just curious), then join us on Saturday afternoon for one or both of the one-hour creative writing exercise/contest workshops. This event will be open to ALL ConQuesT attendees (fan and pro alike).
During the workshop, each participant will pull a slip out of each of the bags provided (each bag will be labeled: plot elements - settings - characters - first lines - objects; there will be a separate set of bags for the Young Fan division).
The information drawn from the bags MUST be used in the story, and the first line must kick off your story. Keep in mind that there MAY be duplicates of some slips. You will have one hour to compose and edit your story. Stories are limited to no more than five pages for handwritten stories and three pages for typed stories. Remember, short and sweet!
All stories written in this workshop will be posted in the Con Suite and members of the convention will vote on which stories they like the most (stories will be posted anonymously) in several categories: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror. There will also be three divisions: Professional, Amateur, and Young Fan. The winner(s) will be announced at Closing Ceremonies.
