Aspiring Fantasy and Sci-fi writers are very welcome to submit their entries for the Blizzard Entertainment’s 2010 Global Writing Contest which is nigh reaching its deadline.

This is an amazing opportunity to write a story many will read around the world, and an opportunity to meet Blizzard’s Creative Team in their Irvine studios.

I was fortunate to meet the last year’s 2009 Global Writing Contest winner (author of In the Shadow of the Sun). By coincidence or fate, we shared the van which picked us up at the airport — courtesy of Blizzard Entertainment. We met again at Blizzard’s Headquarters before and after she met the in-house writers. I sneaked her in into the Anaheim Convention Center’s press room, and hopefully she managed to play the Cataclysm demo.

She was very excited meeting the writers and developers at the studios and to enjoy BlizzCon. I took the photo seen below in front of the Anaheim Convention Center’s press room. The contest winner (to the left, wearing a green shirt) with our WoW: Incgamers staff Maticus.

If you haven’t started writing your awesome story, it’s a very good time to do so

Blizzard Quote:
Be warned, all ye wordsmiths and masters of prose… the 2010 Global Writing Contest soon draws to a close!

If you have yet to submit your original tale from the Diablo, StarCraft, or Warcraft universe, the deadline is next Monday, August 23, 2010.

Those who take us on the most brilliantly written journey shall reap the ultimate reward — a trip to Blizzard Entertainment’s headquarters to meet the writers and staff behind the lore of our games. You’ll find all of the details here, including the winning story from last year.
