2017 SMASH! FanFiction Competition

 

2017 SMASH! FanFiction Competition

 

Great news for all writers of FanFiction: The 2017 SMASH! Fanfiction Competition is now open!

 

Come and join in the fun of SMASH! by participating in our FanFiction competition. Have fun twisting the canon or possibly disregarding it entirely. This competition is open to anyone of any age and any skill level - you don’t have to be a professional author to become a FanFiction writer!

 

All participants will receive detailed feedback for their entries from experienced writers!

 

To be in on the action write a ficlet (<1000 words) or a short story (1001-7500 words) inspired by one of the prompts below. A winner will be announced in both categories - Prizes are to be announced!

Never heard of FanFiction?

Are you someone who wonders “what if?” when you think about your favourite anime? Do you read manga and think “if only the creators had changed this…”?

 

Why not try writing your own version of your favourite story by rewriting the ending of an episode or forcing two manga characters into an unusual situation? The possibilities are endless in the world of FanFiction!

 

 

Prompts

Please use one of the following prompts:

  1. The future rewards those who press on. I don't have time to feel sorry for myself. I don't have time to complain. I'm going to press on.
    - Barack Obama

  2. “Ah, music," he said, wiping his eyes. "A magic beyond all we do here!”
    - J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

  3. A man learns to skate by staggering about and making a fool of himself. Indeed he progresses in all things by resolutely making a fool of himself.
    - George Bernard Shaw, Advice to a Young Critic

  4. Terror made me cruel.
    - Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

  5. Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.
