Nothing has re-ignited my passion for writing as much as the #ScotiaLovesBooks contest.
After a friend shared the contest with me through a group chat, I was so excited to be
able to stretch my creative muscles, while challenging myself to do better.
The #ScotiaLoveBooks contest challenges writers to tell a story in 140 characters and runs until October 16, 2018. The winner will be chosen by Scotia Bank and will win tickets to the Scotiabank Giller Prize.
The My Poetic Heart Twist:
From today, October 8, to October 16, I will be posting one 140 character story per day on my Instagram. The story that gets the most engagement (likes and comments), will be developed into a full-fledged short story, to be shared on my blog.
Stories will be posted at 8:00 pm every night.
To up the challenge, the theme for the following day’s story will be chosen by you! Pop by my IG account every morning, chose your favorite topic, and watch your choice come to life!
To see the 140 character stories: follow @mypoeticheart on Instagram.
