Flash Writing Contest!

Happy Friday! If you read our latest blog post, then you know we are starting monthly writing contests for our Patrons. Available to anyone who donates $2/ month (or more), a new contest starts on the first of every month. The top 3 picks will be featured on our blog (and because the challenges focus on good. short. writing., you could even submit your piece(s) to us)!

We have a lot of cool contest ideas lined up and can’t wait to see what our Patrons write (this could be you!). These challenges are meant to get you writing and to have fun with language–and the best part is they’re all one page long or less!

Our first donations will be processed August 1st (YAY!) and we will launch our first flash challenge at that time.

Here’s a sneak peak of that first challenge, the Fifteen Word Scramble:

We will provide you with 15 words that must appear in your 1-page piece of writing (poem, story, drama, any genre). The goal is to defamiliarize the 15 words– for example: using nouns as verbs, creating interesting images through juxtaposition, or something else. Surprise us!

If this sounds like fun and you want to participate, then please support us on Patreon!

As always, we couldn’t do what we do without you. Thank you!
