i have not talked about my writing in a long while, mainly because i have not written anything new that i feel i can show. So i have joined a summer writing contest to get my butt in gear and get my writing up another level.
The contest is hosted by The Write Practice; it has a constraint and a word limit (which i am finding very difficult to keep within), all of which makes things very interesting.
But the part i like most about the contest is that they require that your piece of writing be workshopped before it can be submitted to judges. And they provide that online workshop space through their writing community platform. It is fellow-contestants who help to crit your work during the workshop period so they try to foster a spirit of cooperation and mutual support.
Sounds interesting? Care to join me? You can check it out here.
