The Hominum Journal has announced the Young Writers Contest 2021, to encourage future writers. All students of high school or secondary or undergraduate status are eligible to apply. Applications are now open for this exciting competition attracting talents from across the world. So, if you are someone who wants to show off your exemplary work in the categories of prose and poetry, then, this opportunity is for you!
The “Young Writers Contest” is an initiative to encourage youngsters to take up writing and other literary professions. Writing improves our listening and critical thought abilities. Writing allows us to convey who we are as individuals. Our thinking and learning become tangible and lasting as we write them down. Writing improves our capacity to communicate and clarify our thoughts to others and ourselves. Thus, this competition re-emphasizes its importance.
The Hominum Journal considers the writer and the body to be the same. They agree there is vocabulary deep inside the bone marrow and muscle tissue, in addition to the morphology of storytelling. A language that bridges the gap between mind, body, and spirit. When moved beyond the tangible, a language can challenge, heal, and embody. That is the source of inspiration for starting this competition.
