For this new season of our wildly fun Friends Who Write challenge, we are introducing 2 new prize categories: 1) the Territory Race, to encourage the development of collaborative, niche communities; and 2) Individual Prizes, to recognize pure, writing excellence unaffected by factors of chance.

👯‍♂️ Territory Race

Introducing a new layer to Friends Who Write: build out your own community with collaborators!

Collaborate with other FWW participants to build shared audiences and race your chosen Territor(ies) to the finish line with the highest Time Points (t.p.) growth during the race period.

How to Win the Race

  • The Race begins on March 8 and ends on March 31.
    • Your collaborators do not have to be your teammates. In fact, you need not communicate with each other or even know who they are, but where's the fun in that? Hot tip: get to know other participants and find out their interests and style, if you're a match, publish in the same Territory to grow your audience together. You must be members of the Territor(ies) you publish in.
      • Explore and join a Territory that resonates with your interests or writing style. Some might require a deposit of t.p. in exchange for the membership, if you don't have enough t.p., you can simply read and write to earn some.
        • Or create a new Territory. If you can't find one that hits the exact spot, there's nothing standing in your way to make one. Territory Admins are a special species, we love them for being at the core of t2's unique brand of community experiences.
          • Publish in the Territor(ies) you support and share the link with friends & family, the person who delivers your mail, or on social media. Anyone can create a t2 account and earn t.p. for themselves and for you when they read your posts.
            • Hot tip: make use of Prompts to get attention on the t2 front page!

              Prizes

              Prizes are divided among participants based on the amount of t.p. they individually generated within the winning Territory, in proportion to the total t.p. generated by all participants in that Territory over the race period.

              • First Place: $2,500
                • Second Place: $1,500
                  • Third Place: $1,000

                    What are Territories and Time Points (t.p.)?

                    • Territories: Communities of niche interests on t2 are called Territories, where members can publish content and connect with a shared audience. For more details, check out our Territory Explainer.
                      • Time Points (t.p.): Time Points are a measure of your engagement and represent your social reputation on t2. The more you write and read, the more t.p. you earn. Learn more about Time Points here.
