100-Word Contest Phase Two

in #thewritersblock3 years ago (edited)

Yesterday marked the deadline for the first phase of this week’s 100-word contest. What none of us saw coming was the hardfork bork that left many Steem users unable to post or interact. Yikes! We managed to get four entries, though, and we’ll be talking to each person who submitted about working with a mentor for the second phase.

Those four entrants are as follows, in alphabetical order:

The new goal for each of these writers is to work with a mentor for a few days to learn what improvements can be made to their stories. It’s now possible to edit a post regardless of age. Once the revisions are done, the entries will be judged by a panel of qualified TWB members who took no part in the editing of these stories. One winner will be selected, and will receive a prize of 20 Steem.

Yes, we’re disappointed that we didn’t get more entries this round. Hardfork 20 was hard on all of us. Still, some great stories came out of this contest. Our editors are excited about the prospect of working with these authors and will be contacting each of them about helping with revisions. We’ve set Saturday, October 13th at midnight EST as our deadline for the second phase. Great job, everyone! Thank you so much for participating.

Hi! Will you host another contest like this?

Yes, they are regular contests. :)

Thanks so much for hosting contests like these @thewritersblock! I'm exploring the idea of creating a community similar to what you all have here. I'd love to chat some time about any tips you all might have!

(And in the meantime, if anyone would like to apply to join us for the first cohort of the SMNDR workshop, please apply here: https://duha8.typeform.com/to/IizGxm -- @deigoam, would love to have you!)

Just wondering why you want to create a separate community rather than join an existing one?

UwU ~ I got a Discord if you want to hmu there. Just reply to me and I can give my discord information, just make sure you take a picture or add me quickly because I will remove it for safety reasons.

Would you like to join our mentoring program on The Writers' Block, @theironfelix? We would love to work with you!

Hello, i would love to move to the next phase of the contest. How do i know the mentor assigned to me? I am excited about having a mentor from the writers block!

I guess this whole discussion would take place on discord.

That's wonderful, @cheekah. We have a mentor for you. @theironfelix, @tanglebranch, and @bohemian.machine too. Please join The Writers' Block on Discord. To do so, just click the block gif above. Or go to how to join the workshop. Once you're in our welcome center, we will get started!
