Blizzard Wants to Read Your Creative Writing
Some of you surely spend enough time in Blizzard Entertainment’s worlds to experience them even in your dreams. Now it’s time to put some of that obsession to good use.
Blizzard is now running a global writing contest, calling for the best fan fiction that its loyal followers can conjure up.
As detailed by Blizzard on its official contest page, “Whether you conjure stories in your free time or write for a living, you’re encouraged to participate. This contest is open to entrants from around the world, and will be judged by Blizzard Entertainment’s own writers and masters of lore.”
“To enter, submit a 3,000 to 10,000 word story written in English and set in the Warcraft, StarCraft, or Diablo universe by April 12 and earn your chance to visit the Blizzard Entertainment headquarters and meet the writers and staff behind the lore seen in the games and books.”
In addition to getting to visit Blizzard HQ, the grand prize winner will also receive an impressive looking Frostmourne sword.
Seven runners-up will receive prize packages consisting of signed copies of the Diablo Archive, Warcraft Archive, StarCraft Archive, and the Warcraft War of the Ancients Archive.
See the contest page here, and the full contest rules here. Please feel free to post your own samples of Blizzard fanfic in our comments section -- it doesn’t even have to be remotely close to 3,000 words. Good luck!
