Originating Ideas Writing Competition (OIWC – 2018)

 

About The Event

Ever thought about sharing your experiences with others and never got a chance? Ever felt the thrill of helping others with the “GYAAN” you have collected over the years!? Are you good with life-skills or what somebody would like to say ‘soft-skills’? Have you ever thought about changing the education system for good….? Then this is the perfect chance for you.

ORIGINATING IDEAS presents to you the Originating Ideas Writing Competitions –  Season 2 (OIWC-2018) for all those people out there who have a hidden or a not so hidden writer in them. We will provide the platform for your articles and publish them on our website. There are also cool goodies to be won.

This contest is open to all those who have the zeal to spread their knowledge through the means of written magic and those who believe that “The pen is mightier than the sword.” So no problem that you are a 10 year old writing about your small little incidents in your life or you may be a 60 year old sharing about your experiences which would help the young Gen-X in the coming years or even anyone in the middle. Send us your entries on the email given and before that please do register on the given link.

The fun part is, there is no word limit this time. So send us your short stories, poems or long essays. We are here to share all kinds of experiences that you have had.

 

Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

-Matthew 25:40

With this thought in mind see you in the competition. Cheerio.
