If you have the flair of writing but have not shown it to the world, here is the chance to showcase your hidden talent and discover the writer within you by participating in “My First Book at ROCKSTAND” Contest. ROCKSTAND has initiated this contest to promote those writers who have the skill as a writer but have opted for different streams / profession and also for the budding writers who are looking for a platform to make a mark for themselves in the critics mind that too with language being no barrier to it.

ROCKSTAND now through this contest will give an opportunity to such professionals as well as budding writers who can now put themselves on test. ROCKSTAND gives the option to the contestants to either write a short story or a complete book and the winner’s piece / book will then get published and released by ROCKSTAND on its platform.

Commenting on the launch Praveen Rajpal, Founder & Director, RockASAP Retail Pvt.

At ROCKSTAND we realized that there was no platform for writers, hence this idea of not only creating a reality shows for the writers but also ensuring that the winner’s piece is published on ROCKSTAND’s platform. An annual event for professionals, budding writers and the writers, this contest gives an opportunity to anyone and everyone to participate and showcase their talent to the world”.
