|Write Club 2014|
Write Club is a contest where 500 word writing samples duke it out in various rounds until only one is left standing: the winner.
I had never heard of this before and was so happy that I came across it just in time for the submission period. Anybody and everybody is free to submit a sample in any genre for the chance to be chosen as one of the 32 participants of Write Club. Once the 32 have been picked, each week there will be two bouts of randomly paired samples fighting for the votes of the Write Club readers (you vote by commenting and joining the write club linky). The sample with the most votes goes on to the next stage of the competition and is that much closer to Write Club glory!
The rules are fun because while you are encouraged to spread the word about Write Club, you are also discouraged from promoting your own sample if you submitted one. It is an anonymous competition focused on writing skill and not popularity.
So here I am spreading the word and still deciding if I should submit something or not (gotta think up a cool pen name...). If you're interested in checking it out click here for the official rules and more detailed info.
