Write the World Album Review Contest

Music review contest

We’ve all waited until the last minute to write that big essay for school, or frantically scribbled down responses to homework questions five minutes before class starts. In school writing is a chore, an assignment crumpled at the bottom of a backpack. But where would we be without writing? Society is built on writing from legal jargon to messages to friends to books, magazines, and movie scripts. Writing is essential to success.

That’s the mission of Write the World, “an online based creative writing platform for teens ages 13-18.” Write the World works to improve the writing of high school students by developing the expression of students’ unique voice, teaching editing skills, and facilitating the publishing of students’ works.

Whether you’re an aspiring poet, a science writer, novelist, sports journalist, or green activist, there is a place for you with Write the World. On the Write the World website you can find an extensive and ever-changing library of prompts to develop your skills, refine your voice, explore diverse styles, and develop your personal portfolio. If you’re a competitive type, looking for a challenge, or want professional feedback on your work, you can enter a competition. As a member of the Write the World community, you interact with other like-minded teens through peer reviews and writing groups dedicated to a specific genre of writing.

Right now, you can enter the Album Review competition. Maybe you play music, or maybe you’re constantly plugged in to your iPod. Either way, this competition is a unique opportunity to explore a writing genre that you would never encounter in school. What’s that album that you’ve been listening to non-stop for the past week? Who’s that artist who takes you to another place? Write a review of your favorite album, then submit it for professional review. Who knows? You may even discover your hidden talent for music journalism!

The winning entrant will receive $100, and the runner-up and best peer-reviewer will receive $50.  Final Submissions Due: Tuesday, April 14.  Check out this website for entry details
