Globe Soup is an online space for creativity inspired by the world around us. We’re not just a travel site, we run international competitions open to anyone. We hope that by bringing together creatives from different places, we can shine a spotlight on undiscovered talent and showcase the work of the best unsung writers, photographers and artists from around the world.
Globe Soup hosts four main writing competitions each year; Travel Writing, Short Story, Poetry and Flash Fiction.
7 DAY STORY WRITING CHALLENGES take place throughout the year.
Each challenge runs for exactly 7 days.
Before a new challenge begins, all those who have registered will be randomly divided into 12 GROUPS. Each group corresponds to a different GENRE.
When the challenge begins you will receive an email with your randomly assigned genre and the SECRET CHALLENGE THEME.
All participants receive the same theme but must write a short story of no more than 2,000 words, inspired by the theme, written in the genre assigned to them.
You have exactly 7 days to write and submit your story.
Globe Soup will choose 12 finalists, one from each genre and an overall winner. The winner of the challenge will receive £500.
