Oneshot Writing Competition!

Oneshot Writing Competition

A challenge worthy of writers everywhere!



Writing oneshots is no small task. This means you write a story of varying length (typically 100 to 10,000 words). It also requires you write your oneshot story about a single event, which means it's only one chapter. We know that writing a chapter is hard enough, and it becomes even more difficult when you are limited to writing your story from a single POV.


Like our other competitions, this one is about challenging yourself - in this case, to write a oneshot - even if it's not something you would normally do. Keep in mind that your oneshot entries can be fanfics or another story, so if this sounds interesting to you, we say go for it! We have all the important details you need to know below. Just know that we're looking forward to reading what inspired and impromptu oneshots you will write :)



How to Participate​


For this competition, you must write a oneshot (between 100 - 10,000 words) on the subject of your choice. This means it must be one chapter in length from the POV of a single character.


If you don't want to write a story for this one, you also have the option of creating a cover for a oneshot entry in this competition. If you choose this option, be sure to include your cover as a separate entry than the oneshot itself.




Winners will have their fanfics, stories, and covers shared on Movellas' social media (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and YouTube).

Best Oneshot Fanfic will receive their entry/oneshot as a papella, or another story of their choice!


Best Oneshot Story will also receive their oneshot as a papella or the story of their choice.


Best Cover will receive a surprise put together by the Movellas Team :)

NOTE: Covers must use resources licensed under CC0, or Public Domain. If you’re creating something that will be listed as a fan work, then you may use resources relating to your chosen fan-base (or combination of fan-bases), but it must be listed as fanfiction when you release it on Movellas.
