Vanessa Walsh from Babelsbook here!
I want to share with you all a really exciting initiative that we are starting here at Babelsbook: a writing contest! Starting today, I would like to invite you to enter our contest by submitting a short-story to us (maximum 7,500 words).
Your prize? The chance to have your work translated for free! The winner will be able to choose which language they would like their story translated into.
How to enter the contest? Simply send us your short-story via e-mail (email@example.com) with the subject line “contest entry” and your full name; then, we will title it as a contest entry and upload it as a blog post on our website for all to read.
After the contest deadline, and once we have received all of the entries, we will open up voting. To vote, simply comment on the entry you like best (“I vote for this entry”). The entry with the most “vote-comments” by the end of the contest will be the winner. Feel free to share the website and your story with your friends, so they can vote for it.
You all have one month (deadline is May 1st, 2017) to submit your stories to us – we are looking forward to sharing your stories on our blog.
