Spectrum - Writing Contest


Perhaps you have an amazing article that has gone unnoticed or you just haven't bothered to publish yet? Itching to write something, but it doesn't fit in with your blog or site? Maybe you don't have a blog or site to publish on... or you'd just like to publish something here on Spectrum?

I have decided that Spectrum will host a writing contest for those interested in publishing here. Prizes will include advertising, being published on Spectrum and Entrecard credits! The basic guidelines will be as follows:

  • First come, first serve: Up to the first 200 entries will be accepted.
  • You do not have to be an entrecard member to enter.
  • You may write about any topic you see at the top of our pages(and it's a broad Spectrum!).
  • The composition may be in any style or form(including poetry) be 250-600 words and be in English.
  • The work may be previously published, if it was on or before 3/15/2009.
  • The entry must be your own original work and you must own the copyright.
  • This is a family safe site. Out of respect for our readers, we try to keep profanity and porn outside of the Spectrum. Please do the same.
  • All entries/entry links will be emailed to spectrumwriting@gmail.com by midnight PDT on May 15th, 2009. Winners will be announced on June 1st, 2009.
  • All entries may be published on Spectrum at any time.
  • All owners retain their original copyright.
