pixiv Novels is holding the "Writing Support Project - Confessions" Contest

Greetings from pixiv.

On February 9th, 2021 (Tue), Novels is holding the contest, "Writing Support Project - Confessions".

This contest accepts novels under a theme that changes periodically.
The theme this round is "confessions". Works featuring any type of confession will be accepted, including those conveying feelings of unrequited love, a once-in-a-lifetime proposal, criminal confessions, or secrets!

One winner will be chosen via a lottery from among the contestants. They'll be able to receive a rejuvenating item (they can pick between an air purifier, high quality bath salts, or an eye massager). Amazon gift cards will be given to 20 runners-up.

Entry Period:
February 9th, 2021 (Tue) ~ March 31st, 2021 (Wed), 11:59 pm JST

Novels under the theme "confessions" will be accepted. The form of the content, genre, and finer details are not considered.
