The Fountain 2013 Essay Contest for Writers Worldwide

The Fountain 2013 Essay Contest for Writers Worldwide

Deadline: September 15, 2013

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, The Fountain welcomed 2013 with a new motto: On Life, Knowledge and Belief. Having spent over two decades exploring life and its many meanings, they have come to believe that knowledge and belief are the two most important tools for life’s journey.

They believe these three words summarize what we want to embody in our magazine. Life is existence, with all its dimensions and veils. Knowledge is the human effort to remove these veils to reveal the truth beyond them. And belief is what gives truth its meaning and relevance to our being.

So, what’s your motto in life? What was it before, and what is it now? If you were to choose three words to sum up your motto, what would they be? The Fountain invites you to write an essay outlining your philosophy on life, your thoughts and insights. Contest is open to all writers worldwide.
