I’m starting a new initiative to support aspiring writers and poets. The big dream behind it is to help talented authors focus on their writing by giving them enough for daily bread using the nascent DBREAD token. I will work to make this dream true and the first step to it is a series of contests starting with this one.
Here’s the deal: I want you to show me a good sample of your creative literary work and if it inspires me, I will back many of your next posts with my vote and summon whale votes on them to help you produce more good writing.
This contest became possible thanks to the generous support of two outstanding artist communities, Whaleshares and Isle of Write.
What you get if you win the contest:
- Whaleshares community will support your next 10 posts with whale votes (1 post a day).
- The Isle of Write community will post a feature dedicated exclusively to the winner and their blog content and also add the winner to its auto vote for the next 30 days.
- I will upvote your posts with a 100% vote during the next 30 days (1 post a day) and resteem to my 1100+ followers minimally one of them each week during this time.
There will be only one winner in this particular contest, but I’ll made a shortlist of applicants I find inspiring and every shortlist member will receive 100 DBREAD tokens (a BitShares account is required). Hold them as they may have value in the future.
To enter the contest, do the following:
- Post in the comments a link to a creative literary piece published on the blockchain (fiction or nonfiction, no longer than 2000 words) written by you. Focus on choosing a quality work which makes a good sample of your writing talent (ideally the post should be past payout). It would be great if you add a few words about yourself and your writing. Don’t forget to add your BitShares name for getting DBREAD tokens.
- Upvote and resteem this announcement post to make the contest interesting and worth entering.
- My choice is subjective.
- Your authorship should be unquestionable. There will be a plagiarism check and cheaters will be banned from future contests (yes this is only beginning!).
- I reserve the right to stop supporting your posts if you essentially reduce the quality of your posts after winning the contest.
- Application deadline: a week from today. The winner will be announced in a separate post.
Enjoy the contest! I am eager to see your entries!
