Your words can help make the world a better place
Write From The Heart is a quarterly Micro Fiction Competition with a difference. Our competition raises funds for worthy charities from all around the world. We are taking a short break but we will let you know when we are open for entries once again. In the meantime, keep up to date by subscribing to our newsletter or following us on social media. Stay safe and write!
This Month's Nominated Charity
One of the unique and fantastic aspects of our competition is that half of your entry fee goes to a charity partner chosen by the previous competition’s winner. The graphic shows just some of the great charity partners we have helped support.
A guide for Open category entrants
Entry is easy. Entries from all over our beautiful planet are most welcome.
1. Write your story – it can be in any format – story, poem, song lyrics – as long as it’s in English and is 100 words or less (tip: some of the best stories are 50 words or less).
2. Make sure your story includes this month’s theme, and feel free to interpret this as imaginatively as you like.
3. Once we re-open for entries you will be able to submit your story.
Total Cash Pool
We’ll keep you regularly updated on the total cash pool via our social media pages (click here). So how is the prize pool calculated? Good question. 50% of your entry fee goes to our monthly charity partner, 10% for admin purposes to keep the comp running and 40% to the winner of the comp, unless we have more than 100 entries in which case we split up the prize pool in the following way – 50% to our charity partner, 10% for admin and 40% is divided up between 1st, 2nd and 3rd with 1st prize taking 70%, 2nd prize 20% and third 10%. Does your head hurt after that? I know mine does. We know that money isn’t everything but hey, you may just earn enough to spread the love and shout your friends or loved ones to a night out at the local.
