FJ Literati ’20
Why do we write?
To tell our stories, where we come from and where we want to go, to connect and empathize with one another, to explore new ideas and escape to fantastical worlds— or simply to amuse and entertain.
Any reason is a good reason to write.
Writing is a bipartite art form. The intellectual pursuit feeds the soul, and the self expression frees it. Every writer knows the thrill of having written a first draft.
Shanawar Literary Society FJMU is proud to present you with this very opportunity— the 5th Edition of FJ Literati, our Annual Short Story Writing and Poetry Competition, where we showcase the brilliance of your stories in their uncensored raw glory.
So, what’s the hold-up? Grab your pens and write away!
