The Summer Writing Contest from The Write Practice and Short Fiction Break is finally here! This contest’s theme is “Redemption” and the deadline to enter is July 10th. You can link to all the information about the contest including the signup page here.
This will be the third time I have entered this contest series and I keep coming back for two great reasons.
First, all entrants are required to workshop their stories for a week with the other contestants. Not only do you get great feedback from fellow writers but you also get a chance to read some great stories and see how the authors incorporate the feedback they receive.
Second, for a slightly higher entry fee, you have the option to receive written feedback directly from the judges after the winners are announced. In the past, I received supportive and constructive feedback from two judges, so I would expect this to continue with this season’s contest as well.
If you can dream up an idea that fits the theme and have the time to pump out a 1,500 word short story in the next week, I highly recommend signing up.
I hope to see you in the workshop!
