  1. Great topics! A small remark though – in the second and the third topic, it’s not very clear as to what kind of composition is expected. For instance, do you want people to write about the demagogue’s life in this world or in the world that it has come from?

  2. The ambiguity is deliberate. We didn’t want (all of) the prompts to be overly prescriptive and dictate the overarching story.
    So, for the third topic, any piece that follows from the premise laid out, be it in this world, the demagogue’s, or both, is acceptable.

    Could I write on more than one topic? Multiple entries?
