Deadline: November 1, 2020
Applications are open for the Kreative Diadem Annual Creative Writing Contest 2020. The contest is Kreative Diadem’s way of celebrating creativity, originality and everything in between. The 2020 edition has two genres: Poetry and Flash fiction.
Poetry: They love the way poems leave a trace of emotions everywhere. They are words that pierce the soul just to drop a message and even leave some eyes misty. It’s not compulsory to write like Shakespeare, they only need you to provoke their thoughts.
Flash Fiction: Writers live twice because even when they are no more, their stories do the talking for them. They love wickedly suspenseful fiction with twists here and there. Tell them a unique story, make us believe it’s true and go home with a cash prize.
