Quarterly Writing Contest!

“Help Promote Rational Discussion Through Your Written Word!”

Current Contest Closing Date: June 30th

The winner will receive a prize of $50 along with an official “award winning” certificate from Freedom’s Discourse!

Articles can be on any subject the author deems fit.  Articles must be 800 to 1200 words and multiple submissions are allowed.

The contest is not open to staff and will be based on the following categories:
Clarity – 15 points
Logically Cohesive – 15 Points
Fosters Discussion – 20 Points

As stated, all articles must be submitted on or before June 30th and the winner will be selected by July15th. No articles submitted prior to March 17th shall be accepted into this contest. Should a contestant choose to use a pen name for the online post, their true identity must still be given to Freedom’s Discourse (otherwise, who do we write the check to!).

Multiple submissions are encouraged and, should a contestant so desire, “practice” articles can be submitted to Freedom’s Discourse for help with editing, guidance, etc. These “practice” articles can be shorter or longer than the submission requirements, but any article that Freedom’s Discourse advises on, or about which you request advice, is not qualified for the contest.

So, to swap around the old saying, “Vote early, Vote often”, we’ve adopted “Submit Early, Submit Often” for the best chance to win!

To be entered into the contest, simply Log In and create an article!  It is that easy!
