Each month Shelf-of-Friends will hold a selection of prompts for group members to choose from. We hope through this that we can inspire others to write and create beautiful works.

The contest ends November 7th.


O v e r v i e w


To evoke inspiration, we have selected a format that group members must write in; we do this in hopes of motivating members to try and expand their abilities in other forms of writing. As for the prompt, there are three things members must choose from to use in the submitted piece and to help evoke inspiration:
  • a first line to be used in the beginning of the work;

  • a last line to be used at the end of the work;

  • a word;

  • a theme* this is only for the month of october and/or other holiday-related months.


*We suggest that you use only one, but if you feel the need to use all, that is also acceptable.  








This month's format: poetry.

You must choose from the following to incorporate in your work:

A Theme: Halloween; spooky, scary, haunted, etc (if you feel you have something along these lines but do not know if it is acceptable, message the group with your desired Halloween theme!)
A First Sentence: On [enter desired date]...
A Last Sentence: ...I know I never will.
or A Word: Seraph ( ser-uhf (n); seraphim (plural) ) an angel;
      or Sublime (suh-blahym) (adj) impressing the mind with a sense of grandeur or power; inspiring awe, veneration, etc;
              (n) the greatest or supreme degree; (v) to make higher, nobler, or purer.


Please submit your work here.

D o n a t i o n s



Seeing as how we are not yet a prestigious group, we cannot hand out many coins. If you'd like to make donations so that we are able to do so, please visit the Founder's page and donate. All donations will be made toward this contest!



Q u e s t i o n s ?



Comment on this blog with questions for this month's prompt or send us a note!




*due to the fact that the points are paid for by the group admin, the estimation of how much money is available to spend on points is to be determined at a later, better date.

Also, if you're low on prizes to offer, see if you qualify for our Winner's Package. It supplies a journal feature, exclusive admittance into our gallery, and a llama from the staff of ACG if you meet the requirements and send in your contest results at the end of your contest. Please see our FAQ for all the details.

Note us if the deadline changes, or if you would like another contest featured.
