Forum open for feedback and advice
Welcome to the World Weaver’s Championship!
There are many contests on W.com which look at genre stories or answers to a given prompt.
Those of you who have participated in the Character Gauntlet by Mynt* will know it is a little bit different: 15 days of prompts to help you flesh out your character and earn a little recognition in the process.
The World Weavers’ Championship is my effort to expand on where the Gauntlet leaves off. Here we’ll tackle the set, the cultures and politics and the part your world plays in your story. That’s not to say that this is a strictly fantasy or sci-fi contest! This applies just as much to the fictional representations of contemporary or historical settings.
This forum will also serve as a discussion area for feedback, advice, and ideas when the contest is not running.
Each day of the Championship a new prompt will be issued at 5pm (17:00) WDC time. Contestants then have 24 hours in which to compose and upload their entry. Late entries will be marked down and three late entries disqualifies the contestant.
You must complete every prompt of the round to qualify for the winners’ podium. It’s recommended you register your interest before the first prompt is issued.
Each entry must be linked in a post in this forum and be presented in the B-Item or F-Entry format.
All entries must be newly written for the contest.
There is no minimum or maximum word count, but you must provide a word count for each entry within the item.
All ratings and genres are accepted.
Editing an entry after submission is not allowed.
