Groovy Pen Writers Contest

Groovy Pen Poetry & Creative Writers Contest

  • The best competitions are adjudicated by authors, editors, and publishers. Even if you don’t win a prize, you’re bringing your work to the attention of professionals.
  • It gives you motivation to write – especially when the deadline is drawing close, and you’ve already paid an entrance fee!
  • If you’re struggling for inspiration, we have provided a theme. The theme might be a picture, word, or phrase, and this can trigger new ideas when you’re feeling dry. Even if you don’t finish in time for the competition, you’ll still be on your way to a new story.

Talented Keeda holds the competition, developed around a particular idea or genre of writing, such as poetry, fantasy, sports journalism, or flash fiction. Competitions encourage you to dig deeper into the writing process, try out new genres and share your work with a sea of eager readers. And because a first draft is never perfect, you have the chance to receive peer and expert feedback before submitting your final piece. Here’s how competitions work:

Writing Guidelines

The power of our writing goes hand in hand with responsibility. Make sure that you’re supporting other people through your writing rather than pulling them down.

  • Anything deemed explicit or gratuitously violent.
  • Anything referencing self-harm.
  • Any commercial posts and/or spam.
  • Plagiarism (see more below).
  • Links to any external websites, with the exception of links to citations as part of an essay, or including links to illustrations or audio as part of a Talented Keeda competition or prompt.
  • Writing in response to Talented Keeda’s free writing prompt that does not fall into the fiction, nonfiction, or poetry categories, or, more generally, writing that doesn’t respond to the specific Talented Keeda prompt in question.
  • Please keep in mind that the mission of Write the Talented Kedea is to give writers a platform for expression through writing. Talented Keeda is a place for members to express their thoughts and views within some form of crafted writing (example: poem, op-ed, story, aphorism), rather than the type of posts you find on social media (example: Q&As, general addresses to the community).
  • If a writer posts content that violates our terms or goes against our guidelines, we will remove the post and contact the writer when necessary.

Plagiarism

Plagiarism, the copying and/or reproducing of someone else’s writing and/or ideas without attribution, violates the purpose of Talented Keeda. If you publish work that is plagiarized, it will be removed from the site. If you continue to publish plagiarized work, you will be disqualified from the competition.

How to Avoid Plagiarism

By taking another person’s idea and claiming it as your own, you are stealing something valuable from them. You are also denying yourself an opportunity to develop your own unique identity through thoughtful writing. Of course, all ideas are the product of other ideas, but it’s very important to differentiate between your own original thinking and the thinking of others.

Here are some tips for avoiding plagiarism:

  • Remember that changing a few words in a sentence or paraphrasing (writing out something in your own words) does not transform another person’s idea into your own.
  • If you are in doubt as to whether to cite something or not, it’s best to err on the side of caution and cite your source.
  • Reach out. We know that the differentiation between original ideas and plagiarism might seem confusing when you are learning to write, and we are here to help. We are also so happy to help you navigate the world of citations—please contact us at talentedkeeda@gmail.com if you have any questions.
