In an Age Writing Contest Writers put their skills to the test in creating an Age with a specific criteria (time, theme, etc.).

RAD: Rapid Age Development[edit]

Writers try to produce an Age within a very short space of time, to demonstrate what can be created with the available tools[1]. The Ages do not have to be finished, and can be completed after the contest ends.
