If you have taken part in the Mini-MOLP writing contests we’ve run throughout the spring and summer, I hope you’ll agree the topics we challenged you to write about were deeply thought provoking.
I believe the subject matter of this particular competition, sets the bar in the highest position of all.
We’re looking for a powerful piece of writing that reveals a truly heartfelt story in the Last Words Monologue.
The brief is simple and you have up to 400 words to play with: the film is about to end, the last of a species is about to die. Write the script of their parting words.
The ‘thing’ about to die is your choice, the venue for their imminent demise is your choice, the way they take their final bow is your choice too. Give it all you’ve got! Make every single word count. Who are they talking to? Their captor, their killer, the clan responsible for the deaths of many of their kind.
I think I’m going to need a box of tissues to judge this one!
