Make sure it's about WoT and between the word limit. One guy has like a 1200 word essay that isn't even about WoT.

To anyone trying to do it, good luck! Hope mine gets 1st  :Smile_trollface-3:

edit: Where do we report plagiarism?

Would it be possible that if I won (Assuming I could write good enough >.<) that the gold could be given to an account on the SEA server?

"es·say/ˈesā/
Noun:
A short piece of writing on a particular subject."


Based on the above definition, I'd have to say yes.:):Smile_honoring:





"es·say  (s, -s)
n.
1. (s)
a. A short literary composition on a single subject, usually presenting the personal view of the author.
------------------

essay
n [ˈɛseɪ (for senses 2,3 also) ɛˈseɪ]
1. (Literary & Literary Critical Terms) a short literary composition dealing with a subject analytically or speculatively"

Am I allowed to write the essay in a poem format? Please answer...

Would like to know too, the instructions leave lots of wiggle room.

If you want to put yours in a poem format that is totally fine. As long as it fits in the 200-400 word rule it works

You can, but I wouldn't do much more. We are going to have SO many to read and it would be nice to keep them at a 400-ish length

:Smile_honoring:
You've earned my respect for that. 12 pages of essays is nothing to sneeze at and if you do manage to post it on Thursday at the latest I can do nothing but commend you for admirable dedication.
