Watch Me Bounce is now accepting entries for its 2012 Resilience contest.

We are looking for stories and poems(both real-life and/or fictional) and poems about “resilience,” or triumph over stress and adversity. Stories and poems can be about about characters coping with stress, anger or fear, steering through challenges.

Themes
Stories and poems can be about one or more of the following three themes:
a. Surviving: getting through adversity
b. Bouncing back from adversity
c. Thriving: Bouncing Back and learning or growing from the adversity.

Topics/Categories
Stories can be about any type(s) of adversity, real-life or fictional, including:

Psychological/Emotional-related Adversities
Medical/Physical-related Adversities
Stress-related
Grief & Loss
Career
Family-related
General: this category applies to any story that may not fit into the above categories.

Note: Entries will first be judged in their specific category and will subsequently be judged in a general, overarching contest. If entries are not selected as winners in their specific category contest, they will still have a chance to be selected as winners in the General category.

Guidelines: Please read all Watch Me Bounce guidelines, terms and disclaimer prior to submitting any work to Watch Me Bounce.

Resilience can be written about in many ways. We welcome entries about resilience as steering though stress, fear and anger in real-time (emotion regulation); entries about overcoming adversity (bouncing back) and entries about not only surviving, but thriving on adversity (growth). Entries may cover one, two or all of these themes.

Before submitting, please read our Contest Rules, Disclaimer, Submission Guidelines and contest Terms and Conditions below.

NOTE: All authors and contestants MUST read the Contest Rules, site Disclaimer(s) as well as comply with all Contest Rules, Watch Me Bounce terms and disclaimer policies prior to entering their submission(s).

Watch Me Bounce is not and will in no way be responsible for entries submitted or published that do not meet the guidelines above. In addition, please note there is guarantee of publication.

Resilience Rules:

Stories and Poems can be any genre, as long as they are themed around the concept of resilience.

No Erotica, please. Inappropriate content will not be considered.

All work must be original. Multiple submissions are allowed.

Length: Stories and poems may be anywhere from 500 to 2000 words, poetry 1 to 30 lines.

Professionalism and proper grammar are both required. Please do not send us unedited work.

Prizes: Winners will receive a free Critique of their work by our editors and will be published and possibly featured on WatchMeBounce.com’s Home page.

Note: Watch Me Bounce only asks for one-time rights, which means you can publish your work anywhere else you like. You, as the author, retain the copyright. Authors can also retain first-time rights if they choose.

How to Submit:

Please e-mail editor@watchmebounce.com with the words “Watch Me Bounce Contest” in the headline. We will review your submission, contact you if you are selected as a winner, and notify each and every writer when the contest results are in.

Deadline: The Deadline for our 2012 Contest is set for May 20th, 2012. No submissions will be accepted after that date.

We encourage and welcome new as well as established writers to enter.

Stories will be judged by the Editors and staff of Watch Me Bounce. Winners will be selected based on the following criteria:

Plot structure and Character Development
Writer’s use of language to convey the story.
Professionalism and Grammar
Imagination and excitement: Does it grab readers from the beginning? Keep then engaged?
Lesson on Resilience: How well the story or poem convey the importance of having resilience? Or what happens when characters do not show resilience?
Remember: Resilience can be written about in many ways. We welcome entries about resilience as steering though stress, fear and anger in real-time (emotion regulation); entries about overcoming adversity (bouncing back) and entries about not only surviving, but thriving on adversity (growth). Entries may cover one, two or all of these themes.
