G.I.W: Christmas Competition

Greater Impact Writing Competition

Christmas Time

Closing Date 31st December 2019



Competition Themes

It’s not always possible at times to write and create a story, tale, poem or an artistic piece based upon one title only – sometimes the juices refuse to flow, or the words don’t spark the brain into action – so to make it more ‘impactive’, our entrants have a choice from five Themed Suggestions. Take your pick from one of the following theme prompts.

One entry only per blog – have fun and good luck!

“The International Sack of Goodies – I.S.O.G”

“The Perfect Day”

“A Clean Bill of Elf!”

Just One Gift!

“Christmas Is Overrated – Right?”


Competition Rules

In order for each entry to qualify the following must be adhered to:

Short Stories, Tales or Discussion – 1500 Words maximum

Poetry [Rhyming or otherwise] – 50 Lines maximum

  1. Hi!! I’m very excited to do this and so count me in for the last theme offered “Christmas is Overrated, Right?”….I’ll be doing a discussion in FAVOR of the day… Thanks Rory!! 😀

    1. Hey Melanie, okies, currently however you are the ONLY entrant – l am a little surprised that no one else has expressed any interest in it – but that’s great 🙂

      If we don’t get five entrants – the competition has to stop for this period – so least you have a heads up 🙂
