Competition

nCh1C2KThe details of competition submissions are as follows:

  • Write a blog post reflecting on the theme of no more than 450 words.
  • Each post should include
    • something to do with writing
    • something to do with faith
    • something to do with the digital age
  • Entries should be emailed to competitions@christianwriters.org.uk (between July 1st and October 7th 2013)
  • Anonymity is not necessary, so emails should contain the name and contact details of the entrant, plus title of the blog post. Please specify if you don’t want your name attached to the blog post. 
  • Only one entry per person.

Entrants can interpret the theme in whatever way they see fit; however ideas/inspiration could include things like:

  • how we express ourselves in a Christ-like way online
  • the opportunities and drawbacks in a digital world for spreading the good news by writing
  • is there a ‘Christian ethic’ of writing – and how does this apply to blogging, tweeting, facebooking etc?
  • what style of writing is tweeting and facebooking? How do we apply the writers’ craft to this – or do we?
  • what makes a good writer? How is this different (if it is different) from writing prior to the digital age?
  • what about ‘text’ and ‘tweet’ speak? Do we love it or hate it? Digital jargon – does it obscure our meaning?
  • what is a ‘Christian’ writer? Is it someone who writes Christian content? Or someone who has a Christian faith and is also a writer? Do we have a responsibility to embody our faith in an age where little remains hidden?
