Winners of the Oneshot Competition!

Winners of the Oneshot Writing Competition

All of your amazing entries were read - we hope you're ready to hear about the winners!



The challenge of this competition was to write a good oneshot...and what is a "oneshot," you may ask? This is basically a story between 100 - 10,000 words on the subject of your choice, one chapter in length, and from the POV of a single character. While this may seem like a relatively straightforward task and maybe all the easier on account of the story length, you'd be surprised how much work and excellent narration is required in writing a good oneshot. While there was some dabbling in cover-making, the majority of entries were oneshots and great examples of how shorter stories can be just as gripping as the long ones :)


Winners will receive papellas of the story of their choice and other prizes chosen by the Movellas Team. We hope you all enjoyed having this competition - thank you again to those who took part, you can only imagine the difficulty we faced in selecting the winners below...
