ELYSIAN 2020

ELYSIAN 2020

“In an era of destruction, create something.”

Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. It breaks the shackles of time and is proof that humans are capable of working magic. The words written upon a page bestows a portal into the life of a writer. Whether the words are jotted down with a pen or typed on a screen, the efflux of the writer’s prowess can be felt. With this note, we bring to you ELYSIAN 2020, our creative writing competition. There are those among us who want to write but are just not motivated enough. There are those who want to write but wish that they wrote better. There are those who want to improve a specific piece they are working on and want some honest feedback without being derided or dismissed. There are those among us who have lost the zeal to write unless there is a gun pointed at their heads. Take your first move and let the world know of the wordsmith inside you. This is the perfect platform to showcase your talent, immerse people in the world of your own making, and, at the same time, share your wisdom with the world. Come on all, and share your heart out and funnel your core message into takeaway write-ups, crafted by the amative within you.

Quotes Inferno is of the belief that creative writers should be appreciated for their talent and a stage can be built for them to fly. ELYSIAN 2020 brings to you an opportunity to discover your writing skills.
