East West University English Conversation Club proudly presents “Inkspiration: An Inter-University Creative Writing Showdown with EWUECC.” This event is set to provide a unique opportunity for university students to showcase their literary prowess in two captivating segments: Short Story Writing and Poetry Writing.
In both the Short Story Writing and Poetry Writing segments, participants are invited to embark on a captivating journey of literary expression. For the Short Story Writing segment, participants must skillfully craft moving narratives within a word limit of 500–600 words, and submit it online via the Google Doc platform before the deadline on August 20, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. Similarly, in the Poetry Writing segment, participants are encouraged to let their words dance on the page, evoking emotions and painting vivid imagery. Poetry submissions must also be made online via the Google Doc platform by the same deadline. A panel of esteemed judges will carefully evaluate the poems and shortlist participants for the final round.
Shortlisted participants from both segments will be invited to the premises of East West University to compete in the Final Round of “Inkspiration.” In this electrifying phase, participants will have one hour and thirty minutes to create their masterpieces, either a short story based on given themes or poetry on specific themes. The Final Round for both segments will be held on August 26, 2023.
Adding to the allure of “Inkspiration” it is going to organize an exclusive workshop on August 20, 2023, featuring the esteemed Selina Hussain.
