Dreem-WOTW S3 R1 - Shining a Light on the Quintessential Elements

Air, Fire, Water, Earth, and (A)ether

This month we will be tackling the five elements in dreem-wotw.

Choose the element(s) that you most identify with and write.

Perhaps your chosen element is a character waiting to be formed and shaped by you. Perhaps it constitutes the theme of your story or is an important part of the plot. Whatever role you give to your chosen element(s), make sure you make that/those element(s) the star of your written piece, be it short story fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, or discursive essay.

This month the Dreemport submission date is:

Tuesday 22nd August between 4 am UTC and 23h59 UTC

Please note...


The curation/submission cycle starts and ends at these times so there is unfortunately little room for flexibility. All valid submissions to Dreemport will be reviewed and ranked by public curators the following day.

If you want to have your voice heard in this respect, simply log on the next day and curate and rank the 5 random contest posts assigned to you. This part is highly advisable, as part of the grading process includes an allocation of points for engagement... but engagement is only assessed if you do Dreemport curation of the contest posts in Dreemport on the day following the contest submission date.

The top 5 in Dreemport will automatically be shortlisted for grading for dreem-wotw prizes, alongside other entries of merit put forward by members of the grading team. We will also be able to access the top 5 Dreemport staff entries in the background and will run two contest pools to keep staff and public entries separate 😊

The dreem-wotw team will then use a Merit grading system that incorporates some aspects of the ORIGINAL Merit Grading Model developed by @scholaris and others added by @juliamulcahy in order to determine the winners.

If there are fewer than 5 entries in the staff contest pool, the dreem-wotw grading team reserves the right to award prizes only to those staff entries that are clearly amongst the top-scoring entries, considering all entries in both pools.
