Revisiting The Writer’s Games

Do you like to write short stories?

You do … but can you follow a prompt and write a story in 72 hours?

No, it’s not a trick question.

Because for the next six weekends, that’s what I (and a fair few other writers) will be doing.

It is definitely not your average writing competition.

Not only is it free to enter (you do have to register well in advance, though), but all submitted entries get feedback from multiple judges.

That’s pretty AWESOME.

And, you know what is even 

The top five entries in each Event are published in an anthology. 

So, you get writing practice, guidance on submitting professional entries, and the chance to be published. (I’m playing down the side-effects of binge-eating chocolate and drinking your body weight in coffee, because that’s just a typical weekend. Isn’t it?)

This is my third time as a participant, and I’ve had three stories published in the anthologies. I’ve since gone on to develop a couple of stories that were spawned during previous Events too.

You can see why I love it.

There’s so much more to The Writer’s Workout than this competition. You’d be hard-pressed to find such a range of writing-related activities, ideas and support anywhere.

Be sure to check them out if you’re up for the challenge.

You won’t regret it. I certainly don’t.

To my fellow writers:

 “May the words flow to your victory.”

To the organisers: a huge “Thank You”

See you in a few hours!
