Embracing Existentialism: A short story contest December 1, 2010 - December 31, 2010
Reading and Deliberating
For this contest I want you to create your own portrayal of any existentialist short story. In your adaption, include a paragraph at the beginning explaining which story you are portraying and a short summary of the plot and themes in the original. Then, at the end of your portrayal, include a small analysis of your piece, defending why you chose to write it the way in which you did. Also, try to connect your story to the ideas of existentialism.
Some examples of existentialist writers and short stories (but not limited to) include:
-"The Guest" by Albert Camus
-"The Wall" by Jean Paul Sartre
-"White Nights" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
-"Saint Manuel the good, Martyr!" by Miguel de Unamuno
-"The Judgment" by Franz Kafka
and there are many, MANY more!!
if you have an idea for a short story of your own creation then feel free to message me with a basic plot line and I'll go over it and let you know when its been approved.
a in depth review by me sent to your email, along with with me with reviewing 5 of your pieces chosen by you
