Protagonize, the Vancouver-based online writing social network is sponsoring a contest in honor of the Olympics currently going on in its hometown. The site is a collaborative and communal story-telling site, so the contest involves writing an original story featuring “feats of wonder,” which Protagonize defines as “Acts both large and inconsequential [that] can have their impacts felt, as long as the conditions are right.”
Here’s more on the contest: “To enter the competition, authors must pen a tale in which a feat of wonder occurs, leading to some kind of unforseen conclusion. An feat of wonder can consist of many things, and doensnâ€™t simply represent a feat of extraordinary strength or agility. It could also be genuinely caring gesture, a triumphant act of kindness, a noteworthy deed of bravery, daring sleight of hand, or a particularly worthy exploit of any kind. Weâ€™ll leave the classification up to our authors, who will also rate the submissions.”
These are indeed days of wonder. Aren’t they? You’ve got till Sunday (when the contest closes) to prove it.
