Saturday Six

Hello all,

Are you up for the challenge?

The premise is simple. Meet on Saturday at 9:00 a.m., a writing prompt will be given, and each participant cranks out six hundred words in two hours. We'll spend the last hour reading the work. No critiques just positive reinforcement.

To motivate people to get up early and write there will be a prize each session. The criteria for winning will be on how well you stuck to the writing prompt. To be eligible to win you must write a complete short fiction piece of at least six hundred words and agree for it to be published on http://www.coalreview.com. After you've taken time to edit and polish it of course.

The winner gets a $25 gift card of their choice.

Topic/phrase and prize winning criteria will be announced at the meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you,

Kari and Julie

    This time, we had enough people to make the challenge exceptionally good. The prompt was to take a fairy tale or folk tale and update it. The writers all had unique means of approaching the challenge and the readings were fun to listen to. I find that meeting with other writers in a friendly competition helps me step up my game. Good exercise.
