Announcing the 7-Day Writing Showcase! *CLOSED, NO MORE SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED*

Due to all the positive feedback on my latest post, I have decided to hold a 7-Day Writing Showcase!


What is the Showcase?:
  • A showcase on this blog, going on for seven days, to share the awesome talent of writers in the comm!
  • Each day for one week, I will post a writing piece by a different writer in the comm.

How do I participate?:
  • If you would like to have something of yours featured in the showcase, email me through the contact form on my sidebar.
  • Your email must include
    • Your name
    • Your writing piece (either copy and pasted into the message or, if you've already published it somewhere, a link)
    • Links to which of your blog(s) you would like me to link to in the post.
  • Submissions are open from today until this Wednesday, January 27th at 11:59pm Central Time.
  • Once you've emailed me, comment on this post so I know you've submitted something. That way, if the email doesn't go through we can organize another way for me to receive your submission.

Extra Info:
  • I will accept pretty much any genre/format: short story, excerpt, monologue, poem, fanfiction, diary entry, play, whatever floats your boat!
  • You can still enter if you don't have a blog! 
  • Old pieces or pieces you've already published on your blog are allowed! Just a warning: if you submit something you've already published on your blog, people who've seen that post on your blog might skip over it when it's published on here. If you submit something you've not published before, however, everyone would still be interested in seeing it on here! 
  • There are six spots left, as I've already had one advance entry. If I receive more than six entries, I will randomize it to see who gets a "spot". Anyone who does not get a spot will still be given a shoutout by me (with a link to their blog) at the end of the week.
  • The Showcase will be held from January 31st - February 6th.

Any questions? Comment them below, and I'll do my best to answer them. I hope you can participate!

Namarië,
Ellie

    1. I got it! Just for clarification, which part is supposed to be italicized? Is it the first and last line only, or the whole of the poem except the first line? Also, would you like me to link to Lost, An Open Window, or both in the post?

  8. Ooo this sounds so much fun! I'm just wondering, do you have any spots left? I realize I'm a bit late in seeing this, and since there are quite a few comments, I feel like I might be too late... It's all right if I can't though. It'll still be fun reading everyone else's. ;) Let me know when you can! :)

    1. You can definitely still enter! I think anyone who wants to should be able to enter, so if I get more than seven entries, I'll just randomize to see who gets a spot. Anyone who doesn't will still get a shoutout with a link to their blog!

  9. I'll enter! But sadly, since I won't have time to write tomorrow, and it's already late, I'll have to submit an old piece. :( I'll probably do a page of Maybe Someday.

  11. I would like to enter! (If it's not too late now.) You actually asked me about this on my blog, but I'm not sure if you saw my reply... Anyway, I was wondering if you would rather me enter the first or second story I wrote for CWWC. I don't really care, I was just wondering if you had a preference. :)

    1. Yup, you can still enter! Submissions are open until 11:59 CT tonight.
      Oops! Sorry, I didn't see it. I don't have a preference at all - whichever you like better is fine with me! :)
