EPIC WORLDS - Free Fantasy Writing Contest

Dear Readers,

today I have the pleasure to share with you the information about a contest which I think is of interest for everyone who is interested in writing fantasy. The picture and the text details have been provided by Inkitt. I don't have any business relations with them and I was not paid for this post.

Drums Roll !

What is Inkitt?
Inkitt is a free writing platform where authors can get creative and watch their stories grow, and they’re opening a new writing contest for entries this spring.
Inkitt is a place for writers and readers to collaborate, trade feedback and ideas to improve their work. In the long run, Inkitt’s goal is to help writers get the exposure they deserve and the publishing deals they want without worrying about the impediments and unfairness of traditional printing and self-publishing.

Writing Contest: Epic Worlds – A New Adventure
This month Inkitt’s writing contest is “Epic Worlds: A New Adventure”. Take millions of readers on an epic journey with your best fantasy stories. Submit ancient tales about dragons and griffins, or tell your vision of the future through a science fantasy story. Unleash your imagination and show what you've got and write a truly unforgettable fantasy adventure. Write an adventure that Bilbo Baggins would envy, one that enchants and excites, astounds and has everyone on the edge of their seats.

What are the Guidelines?
Fiction up to 15,000 words. Entries must be posted on the Inkitt contest page to be considered eligible. The contest opens on May 6th and closes on June 3rd.
The contest is free to enter and authors will retain all rights to any work submitted. Authors must ensure that all ratings are appropriate for their stories.
Multiple entries are allowed, but each individual participant may win only one prize.
Physical prizes can only be shipped to the United States, Canada, countries in the EU, and Australia/New Zealand. Cash prizes can only be transferred to PayPal supported countries.
There is no age requirement for participation but all stories must be rated appropriately by their authors.
Guidelines for submission must be adhered to.
Inkitt staff are not eligible to receive prizes, or be chosen as winners.

That's really cool! I probably won't participate, but I will pass it along to my followers.
