Writing is intimidating. There is this expectation of artful precision, mercurial grammatical rules, and the weird angst that comes with writing for other people. You start with a very small nugget of an idea, but as you try to string it into language, it feels more like you are pulling out your own intestines.

StoryMirror invites you all to be a part of the fifth season of 52 Week Writing Challenge - 2022 (Edition 5). This competition will take your writing skills to the next level and strengthen your creative endurance.

What's new?

The writer has to submit for each prompt every week. The interesting part of this competition is that the prompts will be provided by our participants only. Each time we will mail our participants for the new prompt to which you can share your suggestions by replying to that email.
