Just like last year, the Morrowind Writing Competition will be organized by AliceL93 in 2023 as well. From the 1st of March, 2023 until the 15th of March, 2023, you can submit one or more pieces of literature about Morrowind in the #submissions channel of the Morrowind Writers' Guild server with the chance to win tangible prizes. The competition will start and end on the indicated days, at 00:00, according to UTC. (Coordinated Universal Time.)
Any written work, in any genre, such as fan fiction or essay will be accepted for this competition.
This year mods that include writing will NOT be accepted, because there are several modding competitions, and this time we want to give spotlight to literature instead.
Why should I participate?
Just by participating, you might gain an audience for your writing, along with feedback from the members of the Morrowind Writers' Guild server.
In addition to which, the author of the writing that gains the first place will win 3 video game keys, the author of the writing that gains the second place will win 2 video games and the author of the writing that gains the third place will win 1 video game key. (The game keys include AAA and indie games, and are the courtesy of Darkelfguy and his Morrowind Modding Showcases channel.)
All three winners will also win the “Champion of Writing” vanity role in the Morrowind Writers' Guild server.
The rules of the competition:
Every writing that you submit must be in English. Works submitted in any dialect of modern English are acceptable.
There are no restrictions concerning length. However, for longer projects, such as novels and plays, the submission of an excerpt instead of the whole work is acceptable, and recommended too.
Works submitted must be about Morrowind and they absolutely should be, at the very least in part, some kind of a written work.
There are no restrictions concerning the theme (as long as it fits the broader theme of Morrowind). We believe that one of the most important functions of art is self-expression. Works exploring sexuality, trauma, grief, violence or other sensitive topics are okay, but the usage of content warnings before posting is highly recommended.
You can start working on your piece of literature before the 1stof March, but it must be published during the indicated time period to be considered for this competition. Your work can be published on any platform, as long as you provide a link in the #submissions channel of the Morrowind Writers' Guild server for us to access it.
For anything that you submit, plagiarism is forbidden: your writing must absolutely be your own, original work.
The winners will be based on the vox populi: members of the Morrowind Writers' Guild server will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece of literature once the competition ends.
Since it’s a competition organized by only one person, only members of the server can participate, by submitting their work in the #submissions channel. If you wish to join our server, please click here.
