The Novella Concept

Putting ideas into words. Turning words into actions.
Write a novella (or 12). Support charities with your words.

Have you ever felt as though, as a human being, you’re just not doing enough to make the world a better place for other human beings? Even though you really, really want to?

As a writer, have you ever felt like your words don’t matter at all?

Whether you’re a professional storyteller, aspiring writer or just someone who enjoys writing for fun, your words have the power to make a difference in the world.

If you’re looking for a way to raise awareness and/or funds for a cause you support, and a way to put your words to good use, you’ve found it.

By taking part in Novelty Revisions’ first annual writing challenge, The Novella Concept, you can now write stories, donate to charity and spread ideas and kindness, all at once.

Participating in The Novella Concept allows you to:

  • Write one 20,000-30,000-word novella per month, for one month or more throughout the year
  • Expand your own awareness of both local and global issues
  • Donate to multiple charities you care about simply by writing and distributing your work
  • Write as much as you want, when you want, for however long you want

This is a strictly volunteer, month-by-month commitment. You can help spread the word about The Novella Concept whether you have the time to actively participate in the writing challenge portion or not.

So how does it work?

  • Each month corresponds with a writing prompt; a theme your novella should revolve around. You choose the theme!
  • Every theme is connected to a specific charity supporting the matching issue or cause displayed in your story. You choose the charity!
  • When you’ve written your novella, use the self-publishing platform of your choice to distribute your novella.
  • Donate the proceeds from your novella to the charity your story corresponds with.

Not only will you be able to get your name and work out there; you’ll also be supporting a good cause at the same time.

Your words are more powerful than you think. Your stories can actually change the world.
