Challenges

If you'd like to write, but need something to get you started, you can always check here for inspiration. Anyone can take up one of these challenges, including the ones that have already inspired someone else. After all, who would object if her challenge would result in more than one story?

Please make sure that you refer to the original challenge / bunny when you post your work! If you post your story outside of the Faramir Fiction Archive, we would appreciate it if you would link back to the challenge page.

If you have an idea for a story and would like to submit a challenge to go on this page, please get in touch.
