Heartbroken Writing Competition

When there's nothing better to do than write through the pain...



The world can be a tough place and from what we know, people go through different things in their lives, and not all of it is pleasant or happy. There's love, there's pain, and then there's another good reason to write fanfiction or your own story. What story do we mean? The theme is heartbreak and there's many who've experienced this kind of pain, like a bad love story. What's worse, is that anything can happen to a teen, what seems to be the important part of all this is that these voices are still heard - or better yet - read! 


When awful things happen, sometimes you can't go to your friends or family, but there's this story in you, and we think that if it's there - whether inspired by real or fictional circumstances - you need to get it out, and writing is as good a place as any to begin.


We want to emphasize that it doesn't matter how shocking your story of heartbreak may be (although, please rate accordingly) there are plenty of topics not off limits that you could write about like dealing with illness or disease, suicide, even going through something as horrific as a school shooting. These are things that happen and no one should feel as if they don't have a voice to tell that story. It's stories like these, be them fiction or not, and while the premise may be frightening, painful, or even taboo - we want to hear them because here on Movellas you can still share these kind of stories, no matter what.
