and check this out! Here are the rules of Write Club.
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 newsubmissions 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", bothWRiTERS will come from the existing pool less the previous winners.
So, what’s new for 2012? As I mentioned above, anyone who wants to participate (submit a writing sample OR to vote) will need to add their name to the Magical Link list below, officially becoming a member of the WRiTE CLUB. Not on the list…no voting or submitting allowed. The second change is that we’ve increased the word count for submissions up to 500 words. And the most exciting change of all….
The winner of the final round will be picked by a panel of publishing industry professionals! Agents, Editors, Marketers, and published authors!
