India Writing Project: Essential Registration Information

Are artwork or illustrations allowed with the writing submissions?

We appreciate your desire to express creativity in various forms, but currently, we accept only written submissions. This is to ensure consistency and to make the evaluation process easier for our judges. However, you are free to use vivid imagery and descriptive language in your writing to paint a picture for the reader. After all, as they say, a well-written piece can often paint a picture worth a thousand words!
