This Is How You Can Win $20,000 By Just Writing 100 Words
This is neither a clickbait nor a scam. But you definitely need to hurry!
So this is where it all started from…a tweet.
So I was just musing lately on the thought of making money from pure writing. What do I mean by pure writing? You—just—write. No selling. Nothing.
“Is that even possible,” I asked myself. So I went to the mighty Google and ran a search. After many useless searches, I typed what I actually meant. “Writing competitions with a cash prize.”
I don’t think there’s any other way to make that much amount of money without doing any sales and/or marketing.
But what I discovered then blew up my mind completely.
I discovered a writing competition that was paying the winner $20,000—and that too for writing just 100 words (maximum)!
That writing competition goes by the name…drumrolls…International Short Tales Contest organized by the César Egido Serrano Foundation.
They are hosting their 6th edition of this competition this year.
Let’s quickly see if you’re eligible to enter this competition:
