OVERVIEW

You know those daily deal sites like Groupon, Living Social, and Woot? Do you also know how all those deals have that clever/ironic/pun-filled write-up? Ever wanted to write one of your own? Now is your chance! Your chance is right now! Take it.

You Create the Deal

It can be anything. It can fantastical like, “Half off semi-decent person’s soul,” or nonsensical like, “trade in a family heirloom for a bucket of golden nails,” or something totally normal like, “$10 for $20 worth of beer and nuts at Twisted Swifts Brewery.” Make it your own.

You Write the Write up

300 words. Make it a clever, funny, witty, pun-filled pie. Give some deal details and prices but tell a story, set a scene, throw some color up on your deal. Throw it loud. Unlike the writers of the actual deals, there are no content restriction and no reason to hold back your creative war-horse.

People Try to Buy Your Imaginary Deal

This probably won’t happen. In fact,  it definitely won’t. We just need a third headline because headlines always work better in 3’s.

That’s it. Deadline is 10 pm EST on July 31, 2011. If you need to do some field research, sign up for some of those daily deal sites and peruse away for a few days.

To submit, start a new chapter in this writing project.

WEbook will pick 6 winners and award them free entry to PageToFame, our flagship writing contest. We'll also highlight each deal on the blog and see if anyone tries to buy it. If they do, we'll tell them it's a pretend deal and that'll pretty much be the end of it.
