Two Contests Pave the Way for TellitMyWay Launch!
As Tell it my Way prepares for public launch, we’d like to invite children’s writers and storytellers to enter our exclusive contests, Something New to Love, which begin on February 14, 2014.
Highest-scoring Original Story. Between February 14, 2014 and March 14, 2014, writers will post their own original children’s stories on Tell it my Way. A week after the posting period ends, the author of the original story on the website with the highest score (determined by other users who can vote stories “up” if they like them or “down” if they do not) will receive a $50.00 Amazon gift card and will be featured on Tell it my Way!
Highest-scoring Retold Story. Between February 14, 2014 and March 14, 2014, writers are invited to retell any story on Tell it my Way. A week after the submission period ends, the author of the retelling with the highest score with also receive a $50.00 Amazon gift card and will also receive recognition on Tell it my Way!
You may enter both contests, and you may also enter as many original stories and retellings as you’d like! One writer may win both contests.
Winners will be notified by email. Winners must reply to the email within a week to assure us that the email address is legitimate, and then they will each be emailed a $50 Amazon gift card. The winners of the contests and their winning entries will be highlighted on the site as well as the runners-up.
