January-March 2013 Writing Challenge

Tony, aka VAiru

Recommended Posts

Note that this contest's deadline has been extended through March 22nd to incorporate the Writing Improvement Month's special challenge!

Welcome, my friends, to the inaugural Writing Challenge of 2013! To start off, we're returning with a two-month contest with a theme chosen by the December Challenge's winner. As our characters move into 2390 -- their last decade before 2400 -- Jalana Laxyn would like you to consider what the next ten years hold. In her words,

"'Where do you see the universe in 10 years,' be it in society, technologically, medically, personally.."

What do you think might happen? UFOP:118's blockbusters of the past few years have taken a stab at that question with, for example, this year's Klingon crisis and the admission of Bajor to the Federation, but perhaps your take will be smaller than that. What can you do with ten years of growth and the character of your choice?

The deadline for this Challenge is Friday, March 22nd! You have just under seven weeks to submit your stories from the start date (Tuesday, January 8th).

As always, please remember:
*Your work must be completely original.
*You must be the sole author of the work.
*Your story must take place in the Star Trek universe, but may not center upon canon characters.
*Sign your final draft as you would a post on your ship.
*Your story must be between 300 and 3000 words.

As of today, this Challenge is open.

For any questions you might have, remember that you can always visit the Writing Challenge website.

Good luck!
