The 100 Word Essay Challenge / by Foot Notes


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.
