Do you have "the write stuff?" Sorry, I just couldn't resist.
Next month, I'll be moderating a writing contest/exercise at the Pill Hill Press forum. They call these things "shootouts," though it's more of a write-off (not to be confused with a tax loophole). A group of writers are given a single prompt/theme, and have to write a short story in one week. The following week, they read some of their competitors' stories and give brief reviews and a point scores (1-10). This will be a 4-round contest I'm running, so it'll take the better part of 2 months to complete.
These contests are really fun for writers, and they end up producing some interesting stories. If you are a writer worth your keyboard, you should consider signing up for this one. Details and more are here, at the Pill Hill Press Forum.
