Greetings from pixiv.

The pixiv Novel's Writing Support Project ~ Heaven ~, and Writing Support Project ~ Hell ~, will both start on Tuesday, January 11th, 2022.

This contest accepts novels under a theme that changes periodically.
This time the are two themes: "Heaven", and "Hell".
Works featuring anything to do with either heaven or hell are accepted. It could be a story about being mistakenly sent to heaven or hell due to a misunderstanding, a diary about daily life in heaven, or even a true story about a hellish real-life experience.

We welcome works that feature both heaven and hell too. Please post with the tag you think best fits the story.
