Write an Advent Calendar: A Competition
Win your own movella as a book!
Christmas is creeping closer and closer, and since we love Christmas on Movellas so much, we are celebrating in a traditional way - with a competition! Advent calendars are a crucial part of the Christmas spirit, so Movellas is hosting a competition to allow the anticipation of Christmas to flow through all of us. If you want to write a story infused with all things Christmassy, then this is a competition for you.
Rather than stopping this competition at Christmas, though, we will have it running all the way through to New Years, to allow more of the Christmassy feels throughout. This isn't a traditional advent calendar, so you don't have to update every day. It could be every two days, or every week, or whatever you want.
You have the following ways to participate:
Write a fanfiction advent calendar
Write a Christmas calendar based on the supernatural
Write a Christmas calendar involving romance
Write which option you selected in the summary of your story. If your story contains fanfiction, it can only belong to the first option.
Winners will receive their movellas as papellas!
There will be one winner in each category, and each winner will receive their movella as a papella :) Best cover will also win a papella. The story entered into this competition does not necessarily have to be the one that is made into a papella; the winners can choose which one of your stories you wish to have as a papella.
For those of you who aren't aware, papellas are movellas made into paperback books! This is a feature that used to be available to all, but now is no longer offered.
- Though you do not have to update your story every day, it is required that you have at least four chapters for your movella to be judged. Prologues and epilogues don't count as chapters, unfortunately. If your story doesn't have at least four chapters, it won't be considered, so please keep that in mind!
- Open globally
- No co-author entries
- You may not update your entry/movella once the competition deadline has passed. You may update it once the winners have been announced, but not beforehand.
- You may not use the same movella in future competitions.
- You may not use a movella that has already been published in other competitions.
