Concision is always a more difficult skill than verbosity. Often one well-crafted sentence can be more inspiring, informative and thought-provoking than a volume trying to express the same.
However, it is also more difficult to achieve. Therefore we’re issuing to all those interested our 100-word-essay challenge.
It could be an academic essay, a journalistic opinion-piece, or anything in between. You might want to synoptize an article you’ve already written; or even write an essay solely on one word, image, theme or event.
The purpose of this challenge is to recapture the original meaning of ‘essay’: a trial or an attempt.
