Here is what Sarah says:

This WSW Competition is for a non-fiction article. It can be any piece of writing that isn’t fiction – a how-to article; a piece of life writing, including a family event or memoir about a relation; a rant; a journal entry; a reflection or musing; travel writing… basically any prose writing that isn’t fiction. The word limit is 1,500 words.
WHAT I’M NOT LOOKING FOR:
 I don’t want a dry recital of facts and figures, because these days we can find all that stuff on the internet. If it is a travel article, for example, rather than just informing me about the history of the place – tell me what that means to you. While I’m happy to read punchy writing that pings off the page, I am not interested in reading polemical content of a political or religious nature, or anything that is disrespectful to any group or person because of their race, gender, or age.
WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR:
Writing that is entertaining and enjoyable to read. Obviously, it needs to be grammatical, correctly spelt and punctuated and yes – I will be deducting marks for mistakes. I enjoy writing that reflects your character, so I am happy to see imagery and vivid descriptions. So with a reasonably generous word count, have fun with non-fiction. I look forward to reading it!
