A nationwide writing competition
 Melonade is our “flagship event” and the most ambitious initiative by Writersmelon. A humble beginning of a nationwide competition has finished its 5th round last year.

It is a country wide creative writing competition which is conducted every year during autumn and continues for 4 months. Aimed at connecting with promising writers, Melonade is a great platform for aspiring writers from all walks of life.

The selected short stories from this competition are compiled into an anthology and is therefore a full fledged publishing & distribution venture for writersmelon to discover fresh writing talent in the country.

2012- 2013

If writing is your passion,
And your words adorn the page
And you long for recognition
Come, let Melonade be your stage.

“Fascinating first crush to the feeling you would
have on clearing the final exam,
the dance competitions for which you prepared
even by bunking classes,
the cricket or soccer tournament which was no
less than a world cup for you” .

Got a writer inside you? Take a slice in writing !
