FAQ: How to participate in #IndiaCollegeClash writing contest

What is Sweek?

Sweek is a global platform for reading, writing and sharing stories. All over the world. For free. We are located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and have an international team from all over the world 🙂

Do I need to download the app?

You can use the app or the web version, it is up to you. There is slightly more functionality present on our app version currently though. For example, receiving notifications when you have a new comment on your story!

Website: https://sweek.com/
Android app: http://bit.ly/SweekforAndroid
iOS app: http://bit.ly/SweekforiOS

How do I publish a story?

Step 1: Download the Sweek app or use our website

Step 2: Create an account or log in

Step 3: Go to ‘My stories’ and then click on ‘New story’. Create a chapter and write or copy in your story.

Step 4: Publish your work and fill in the tag #IndiaCollegeClash in your Story Details (if you are using the website, do not forget to press Enter!). Finalize by ‘Publish’ – your story is now published and part of the writing contest! If you are an entry from an ambassador, put the tags specified by him/her. If you want your college to have a chance of winning the best college title, add the college abbreviation tag as well.

Where can I find all the details of the contest (word limit, deadline etc.)?

Can I participate with more than one entry?

Yes

Is poetry allowed?

Yes

Is Hindi allowed?

Yes

How do I add a tag and edit my story?

You need to add it to your Story Details (dont forget to press Enter on the website). You can either use #IndiaCollegeClash or just IndiaCollegeClash (both are fine). If you are an entry from an ambassador, put the exact tag specified by him/her.

For each contest you can edit your story as many times as you want before the deadline. To access your story: log in, go to ‘my stories’ and click on your story. To edit your story title/description, go to the 3dot menu in your Story Dashboard and click Story Basics; to edit your tags/other story details, go to the 3dot menu in your story dashboard and select Story Details

How do I know whether my story is participating in the contest or not?

If you see the tag on your story page after you searched for it, it is participating. If you are not sure, contact us and we can check it for you 🙂

How do I promote my story?

Best way is to promote your story via your own social media and network. You can also promote it in Sweek fanpage https://www.facebook.com/groups/306066656501682/ or here https://sweek.com/#/read/43452/1400000162. You can find the link to share your story when you search for your story in the search bar and click on it. Here you’ll find the share button on the story info page!

Do I get a confirmation of participating immediately?

No, but if your story is tagged, you are surely participating. However, if you’d like to know for sure you are participating, please ask us 🙂

How can I search for my story?

Current search is based on the title, description and the tag. So you can search for either of those.

What if I can’t find my story on search right away?

No worries, sometimes it can take a few minutes after publishing to become visible on all the platforms. If you still can’t find your story the next day, please contact us.

When is the deadline?
