Shipping Fanfiction: A Writing Competition!

Shipping Fanfiction: A Writing Competition!

A new competition where the ships you all love get the chance to set sail...



Do you love shipping fanfics as much as many of us on Movellas do? If there's one thing we love about this type of fanfiction, it's the sheer possibilities that lie in being able to ship whichever two characters you want from whatever fandoms this could apply. Once you start considering those possibilities, there seems to be quite a few options for writing!

Shipping is about creating a story surrounding a relationship. This relationship is central to the plot and can involve characters from the same fandom or entirely different fandoms. If you're a fan of Harry Potter, for example, you've probably noticed all the Harry Potter ships out there. If you haven't, here's a blog covering some of the more popular ones, like Dramione and Snily :) 


Remember that these ships can be about real-life people too, and are not limited to fictional characters found in film or literature. Don't forget about bandoms, because we seriously never tire of Larry Stylinson. In addition to fangirling, there's some serious potential for you all to create the kind of emotional involvement that YOU want to read about, and in fanfics you'd never dreamed of writing...


In this competition, we want to see what different ships you come up with and we're not limiting it to fanfiction either, you can design or create your own fan art to enter in to the competition as well, the choice is yours.



How to Participate​


For this competition, you must write a fanfiction or create fanart. You can enter a maximum of three entries total. 


If you’re creating something that will be listed as a fan work, then you may use resources relating to your chosen fan-base (or combination of fan-bases), but it must be listed as fanfiction when you release it on Movellas.





Winners will have their fanfiction and fanart shared on Movellas' social media (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, etc.)

Best Fanfiction will receive their winning fanfic as a papella (a.k.a. a paperback version of your movella:), or the fanfic of their choice!


The Runner Up will also receive a papella of their winning entry or the movella of their choice.


Best Fanart will receive a prize inspired by their ship :)
