About this challenge

The Prompt

Write a personal reflection that explores the complexities of love.

Join us as we unravel the mysteries, joys, and challenges of love through the power of personal storytelling. In this challenge, we encourage you to unravel the layers of how you define love by sharing your unique perspective and experiences. Perhaps your reflection is a snapshot of how you viewed love at a certain point in your life, maybe it is about the love you yearn for, or maybe it is that you don't yearn for love at all. Help us understand love – the concept and the feeling – that deeply humanizes us.

Here are some ideas to spark your exploration:

  • Reflect on a moment when love was tested, challenged, transformed, or a source of pure joy in your life.
  • Explore the complexities of unrequited love or love lost, and the lessons learned from such experiences.
  • Celebrate the beauty of enduring love, whether it is through a romantic, platonic, or familial connection.
  • Examine the intricacies of self-love and the journey towards acceptance, forgiveness, and inner peace.
  • Highlight unconventional love. Challenge conventional notions of love and explore its diverse manifestations.
  • Entries will be evaluated based on their creativity, emotional resonance, and ability to convey the essence of "love unraveled" in a compelling and authentic manner.

    In order for your submission to qualify, it must be:

    • Between 600-2,500 words.
