Guidelines for publishing an article on Fagnum.
Contest Theme - We are in the month of March and we want you to march around a little and write for us. Unlike previous contests this time we want you to write an article
about your favourite city/locality. We want to hear your own story, the story from where you belong to/or where you have been to, the story of
its evolution, the story of its success, the story of its rise, the story of its mob.
You can write on any topic (yes, any topic because your wish is our command) varying from listing down beautiful points about your city to
writing on the family living next door which has broken all the societal norms to carve out a new path. An article about the struggling startup
above your floor to the local business which has set the market on fire with its innovative idea. A story about the breakthrough brought
in by a local innovative product developed by the young teenager to a cover story about the new campaign running in your city to empower
the underprivileged. You can also pen down about the journey of your real-life hero whom you look upto as your inspiration.
We urge you to write on anything under the sky happening in your city which you feel should be heard by the crowd out there.
However, you should write with the prior consent of the person/company involved. Endorsing of big brands and established firms is not allowed.
The sole purpose behind this theme is to encourage writers from every nook of the country to showcase their writing skills with their insightful
cover story. This way the local market will come to know about you and Voila you have already established yourself as a proven content writer.
The doors of opportunity will open for you and you will be asked to sponsor many local stories. Isn't this a nice idea? So pull up your socks
and pen down a breathtaking and insightful article/story. We can't wait to hear from you.
