Project REUTSway 2014 Theme Reveal

Posted by on Oct 13, 2014 in Project REUTSway | One Comment

Last week, we announced the return of our annual Project REUTSway short story competition. And we’ve already heard from so many of our REUTies, both old and new—all eager to participate in this FABULOUS writing adventure. We’re as thrilled as you are; in fact, we’re dying to share the theme for the 2014 anthology! So, without further ado . . .

Introducing the 2014 Project REUTSway anthology theme:

PRW 2014 Theme - World Mythology: Tales Across the Hemisphere

So brush up on your histories, legends, and cultural lore, because we’ll be looking for the most original, fantastic versions of tales that have braved the centuries. And don’t forget, each week we’ll throw in a bonus challenge that’s sure to detour your writing plans. But don’t worry, we’ll provide a road-map that will have you globe-trotting through both the expected and the unknown. And after the success of last year’s competition, we can’t wait to see the brilliant variations you’ll unearth.

Now that we’ve shared our exciting news, though, it’s time to talk about a more heartfelt matter. As you may or may not remember, a portion of sales from our Project REUTSway anthologies go to a writerly charity. Our 2013 organization was  Reading Tree/Discover Books, a “green” charity which promotes literacy in the US by keeping books out of landfills, funding library sustainability, providing books to low-income families, and more. For the 2014 season, we’re giving you the chance to decide where proceeds will go! Make a difference. Cast your vote here.

That’s it for another week of reveals! Stay tuned . . . next Monday, we’ll announce the official rules and submission guidelines. Tell your friends, and be sure to sign up for VIP notifications for sneak peeks of the weekly challenge. Only three more weeks until the competition begins! ARE YOU IN?
