2nd Alter Reality Games Writing Contest
Starts: Sunday, June 12th, 2011
Alter Reality Games is all about giving people an opportunity to shine, whether you’re a pro or casual player/writer or just someone with something to say. We’re one of the only gaming sites who have an open door policy on articles, allowing anyone to submit their work without the obligation of becoming a regular writer and so it makes sense to do something else a little bit different.
What do I have to do?
Write about what you know – gaming, it can be YuGiOh or Magic the Gathering. The winning article selected will be the one which our staff feels has the most genuine enthusiasm for gaming, also comments by readers will be taken into consideration and a poll on our facebook page will factor into our choices. We are accepting articles as well as deck reviews and would much prefer if the article was based on your creativity and experience, or even observations or ideas about the local or national gaming community. All articles submitted up to standards will be published on our article site http://articles.alterealitygames.com/. This contest will run until July 21, 2011, with no more entries accepted after midnight 7/21/11 no exceptions. So, make sure you send in your entry in plenty of time. If interested in participating please email Brad at firstname.lastname@example.org he will reply back to you with your account and you can begin your article directly on our article site.
What do I win?
