The Nasiona Writing Prompts League, Season 1 Stats & Rankings

Through 6 of 6 season tournaments

About the league

We will post a new prompt periodically throughout the year, to which writers may respond in 100 or fewer words. Each tournament will be a bracket-style tournament. The Nasiona editors and readers will vote on which submitted pieces advance to the next round of the bracket, and so on, until a winner and runner-up are crowned. The winner takes home 35% of the $$ pot and the runner-up takes home 15% of the $$ pot.

Tell your friends and writing groups. The more competitors, the bigger the competition, and the larger the payout!

Each tournament’s 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers automatically qualify for the seasonal final, along with the next highest ranked competitors at the end of the season. Seasonal winners and runners-up will qualify for the annual tournament, where we will crown The Nasiona Annual Writing Prompts Champion!

For us, art is the process of selection, and we want to read exceptionally told, processed, and crafted stories with an economical use of language. Move us, make us feel, make it carnal so it inundates our senses, impact us in a way that the imagery, concepts, experience, moments, etc., linger with us long after we’ve read it.
