WRiTE CLUB

DL Hammons over at Cruising Altitude 2.0 is hosting this exciting writing contest commencing on 30th July. Check out full details and sign up by following the link to his blog. A copy of his basic rules are listed below. It looks like fun!

1st RULE: You MUST talk about WRiTE CLUB - Spread the word far and wide so we can involve as many writers as possible. Display the WRiTE CLUB banner prominently on your own blog. Write a post about it. Tweet it. Mention it on Facebook. Encourage people to submit or vote.

2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about WRiTE CLUB – Once the competition begins you are not allowed to solicit votes. All of the writing entries are anonymous, and we want it to stay that way.

3rd RULE: If someone taps out, WRiTING is over - Tapping out means a WRiTER can decide at any time during the 12 week competition to withdraw their name from the pool.

4th RULE: Only two people to a WRiTE - This is a head-to head competition, no ganging up allowed.

5th RULE: One WRiTE per week - No matter how many submissions I receive, there will only be one WRiTE per week.

6th RULE: No shirts, no shoes - Come on, tell me you didn't giggle at that one.

7th RULE: WRiTES will go on until Oct5th - On that date the 12 winners will be matched up against one another on daily posts until the ultimate WRiTER is chosen.

8th RULE: If this is your first week at WRiTE CLUB, you HAVE to WRiTE - Each week new submissions will be placed in a "newby" pool from which one half of the WRiTE will be made up. The other WRiTER will come from the existing pool. If there are no "newbies", both WRiTERS will come from the existing pool less the previous winners.


The winner of the final round will be picked by a panel of publishing industry professionals!

  1. That is really cool. If I wasn't having a baby in the middle of that, I would totally join in :)

    1. I think having a baby is a really good reason to stand out of this one. Take care.

  6. Sounds like fun. Getting married is my excuse for not joining in - a good enough excuse, I think, although not as good as giving birth!

    1. I think there is still time to enter if you want to. Even if you don't want to submit a piece of writing you can sign up to vote I think. Check out DL's blog for lots more info.
