What’s in it for you? The challenge, which will take place over the course of four weeks, is a chance for you to share your best ideas with an esteemed panel of judges and millions of Medium readers β€” plus, an opportunity to win $50,000.

How it works

The team at Medium is providing four guiding prompts (writing prompts):

  1. Reentry,
  2. Death,
  3. Work, and
  4. Space.
SEE ALSO: 2021 Kindle Storyteller Award For Writers | Prize: Β£20,000

Each is accompanied by a descriptive paragraph to help you get your wheels turning β€” but don’t feel confined. Your experiences or perspectives might take you down other roads that are well within the parameters of the prompt.

An expert panel of cultural leaders, editors, and writers will join as guest judges to select their favorites. With the help of the judging panel, Medium will select four finalist winners β€” one for each prompt β€” who will each be awarded with $10,000 each.

One of the four finalists will be selected for a grand prize of $50,000. Additionally, 100 honorable mention selections will each win $100.
