The Prophesy Tower. Write A Novel Challenge. The Introduction and Countdown to the Final Chapter. An Amazing Achievement by UAE Schools.

The Prophesy Tower. Write A Novel Challenge – An Amazing Achievement by UAE Schools and Students

Does a school in the UAE have a future best-selling, Booker Prize winning, Nobel laureate accepting author in its ranks? Maybe the Emirates even has a few of them, who just need a little encouragement to get those creative juices flowing?

Our first joint initiative with our sister site, WhichSchoolAdvisor.com, intends to find out with the Write a Novel Challenge!

The teams at SchoolsCompared.com and WhichSchoolAdvisor.com have decided that the time is right to uncover the UAE’s young ‘master storytellers’ and to give them their place in the spotlight.

We have launched our ‘Write a Novel Challenge’ which is, effectively, a literary relay with individual children writing a single chapter of a novel of around 1,000 words.

The story began with its first chapter published both here on SchoolsCompared.com and on WhichSchoolsCompared.com on 31st May 2020.

Our aim? A fully fledged novel written in just 90 days that engages the skills and passion of some of the very finest young writers in the UAE.

 

The Challenge

We put out the challenge to schools asking them to nominate two to three of their top talented writers – and what a response we had! In total 24 schools from around the UAE promptly answered the call and will be participating in the programme.

The ‘Write A Novel Challenge’ will work like this: each weekday one writer from one school will write a single chapter of up to 1,000 words. Immediately, a writer from another school will pick up the story-line and take it in any direction they like by completing the next chapter of a similar length. Students from Year 9 have been invited to participate in the challenge.

Given the average novel is around 60,000 to 90,000 words we believe we should be able to complete the ‘magnus opus’ by the middle of September, an impressive turnaround time for a novel. Each chapter will be loaded the day following completion on the SchoolsCompared.com and WhichSchoolAdvisor.com websites.

Prior to beginning their great literary adventure all writers (and their teachers) were invited to attend an online mentoring session hosted by three very successful authors with Dubai links; Annabel Kantaria, Brandy Scott and Rachel Hamilton. The young authors will receive advice on how to keep readers engaged and can ask questions about the process and craft of composing a proper ‘page turner’!
