What Makes It Awesome

A winner a month, that's the motto behind the Times Of India writing competition, Write India, that goes on for eleven months straight. How does it work? Every month, a different published Indian author {along with the TOI team} selects a winner of a short story, which is written based on a prompt given by the author itself. For each of the eleven months, there's a new 'author of the month' with a unique prompt line, and the entries start on the 7th of the month, and close at the 30th of the same month.

The winners of each month's contest will be announced as the competition rolls on, and at the very end of the same, the winning entries will be compiled into a lovely, fat book. Woot woot.

What's My Pro Tip?

This year's writers list is already out and includes Ruskin Bond, Twinkle Khanna, Jeffrey Archer, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, among others. Take a look at the list now, and pick which author's month you'd like to write in, although you can choose to participate in all if you wish.

Anything Else?

Most of us want-to-be writers are always looking out for a sign, a nudge or sometimes, an aggressive push towards actually writing. This is an awesome opportunity, or actually, opportunities, to write something interesting and maybe even get published.
