The Grey School of Wizardry is now pleased to announce the "What is the Most Astounding Magickal Beast?" Adult Essay Contest. The Contest is open to all aspiring Wizards between the ages of 18 and 138 years old. Contestants do not have to live in North America -- entries are welcome worldwide! The purpose of the Contest is to promote adult scholarship in Wizardry. It is free to enter by submitting an essay via mail, email, or on our site.
You may write about one Beast from mythology, fiction, or films - from any culture -- and what their astounding magickal powers are. The subject of your entry essay is "What is the Most Astounding Magickal Beast?" All Essays must be typed or word processed (not handwritten) in English, and need to be between 400 and 500 words long. Contest entries must be new, original, and unpublished essays. Essays will be judged on how well they fit the theme, how convincing they are, and the overall writing skill.
Entry Deadline: All Essays must be received between October 15th and December 30th, 2007. Winners will be announced on January 15, 2008. There will be one Winner for each adult lodge category.
The four Winners will each receive a scholarship to the Grey School of Wizardry, worth the tuition of one "year-level" (24 credits). Each Winner will also each receive a copy of A Wizard's Bestiary by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart and Grey School 's very own Ash "LeopardDancer" DeKirk. Also, each Winner will also receive a powerful Wand from Willowroot Real Magic Wands aligned with their element.
Also as a Winner, your essay will be published in a special edition of the Grey School magazine, Whispering Grey Matters. (Essays may be gently edited for spelling and grammar by WGM staff.) Aimed at new and potential students, the special edition will be publicly available and used for promoting the Grey School of Wizardry.
