Although I’m struggling through the Blogging from A to Z tail end/aftermath, I’m about to follow WRiTE CLUB 2019.
Just what is WRiTE Club? In short, it “started off as a modest competition loosely derived from the movie FIGHT CLUB, and from there it has grown into a writing community sensation…”
Here’s the link for all the details: https://www.dlhammons.com/p/write-club-2019.html
Monday April 29th is the start of the competition and hard work/thought for us reader-followers:
“Over the course of the next eight weeks, we’ll hold daily bouts (M-F) right here on this blog – randomly pitting the anonymous 500-word writing samples against each other. The winners of these bouts advance into elimination rounds, and then playoffs, quarter-finals, and then ultimately a face-off between two finalists to determine a single champion.”
There were a record-breaking 189 WRiTE Club entries from 137 writers! They received writing samples from writers around the globe that represent 40+ different genres and sub-genres. The twenty clever and avid slush pile readers have narrowed the entries down to the 30 contestants for the daily bouts.
Now it’s our turn. Anyone who visits the WRiTE Club blog during the contest can vote for the sample that resonates with them the most – leaving a critique to help writers hone their craft.
Plus, the readers can win too – if we vote. If you check out all the cool prizes at https://www.dlhammons.com/p/write-club-2019.html you will find all the rules, prizes and links.
So, if you are tempted to read and vote for some great pieces of short writing, visit WRiTE CLUB 2019 from Monday April 2019. You might even pick the WRITE CLUB Champion or be a reader/voter winner.
