In Which It's Time For WRiTE CLUB

WRiTE CLUB is back guys! And I think you should sign up.

What's WRiTE CLUB you ask? And why should you join?

Well I'ma tell you.

WRiTE CLUB (WC from here on, because I'm tired of typing it) is a blog contest. But it's different than the other big contests. Because there isn't any prize.

That's right, the only prize is bragging rights. Which means there's no real stress or worry. It's all for fun.

And it is a lot of fun!

A single elimination competition, where your anonymous submission goes up against another and readers vote for which one they want to move forward. And that's it!

You can submit whatever you want: the beginning, middle, end, poetry, short stories. Whatever you think is your strongest writing and will bring in the votes.

I've participated in the past and always had a lot of fun. I made it to round 2 last year until I was beat out by the entry that would end up winning it all (so there weren't any hard feelings, because I loved that entry too).

This year I'm not submitting anything, since I got the book deal and all that fun stuff, but I did volunteer my time as a first reader, one of the judges who reads ALL the entries and helps pick the 32 that make it into the head to head competition. So far, it's a lot of fun.

There are more details here, including how to submit and all the details and stuff, but I definitely think you should join up, guys. It's a lot of fun and the more who participate the more fun everyone has. We're taking submission until May 31st, so you still have plenty of time to get your submission shiny and stuff.

Join ussssssss....

I've been thinking about it. I really like the 'no stress & lets just all have fun' aspect of it. =)

Yeah, I'm thinking of entering this. I'm such a glutton for punishment. Here's yet another writing contest. On the other hand, it's huge fun and there's nothing attached but bragging, so that could be helpful...

And those bragging rights Sarah mentions mean A LOT! There is some stiff competition, but there is no better way to see how your writing stacks up without the stress and humiliation of a public forum because all of the entries are ANONYMOUS! We only reveal the winners name at the end, and everyone else voluntarily step out from behind the curtain if they choose to.

Fun is the goal!

Thank you for helping to spread the word Sarah! :)
