Write on Edge wouldn’t exist without our wonderful writers. Whether it’s receiving concrit from a writer you admire, finding a new blog to read, or teaming up with someone you met here for a joint collaboration, the community keeps things fresh and exciting.
5 Write on Edge writers are participating in the America’s Next Author short story contest. Unlike most writing contests, this is set up so writers can read other contributions. An 8-round contest, there will be 8 nominees and 4 wild card authors battling their way the final three spots, where they will compete head-to-head in two writing challenges.
A strong story isn’t the only thing that matters in the ANA contest; social media plays a role as well, as social media shares, public reviews, and votes (in the form of one word reviews) will all contribute to the selection of the nominees.
Please consider reading the selections from our Write on Edge writers and voting, reviewing, and sharing to help them advance. (Lance Burson has already been selected as a Wild Card Author – congratulations Lance! – but additional shares and reviews can’t hurt, as the exact formula for nominations and selections for the final round aren’t entirely clear.) A new round begins tomorrow, but shares and reviews count through the entire contest.
Intrigued? Entries to the contest are open until November 27; there’s still time to enter your 2500 – 5000 word short story.
If you are entered in the contest and not mentioned in this post, please let us know and we’ll remedy that. We want to support our whole community through this exciting contest.
As writers, how do you feel about the open format of this contest?
