We Are Writers
The Writer's Workout was formed from a love of competition and encouragement. We are a community of writers with many different backgrounds, ideas, influences, and skill levels. From authors published several times over, poets featured in anthologies, to new writers just starting out, we have one important thing in common: a love of the written word.
We know that no two authors are the same; no author approaches The Craft in the same way as the next, and that's okay. We cater to all skill and interest levels and our members are always willing and able to help aspiring writers wherever and whenever they can. Someone is always around to offer advice, motivation, support, and encouragement.
The Writer's Workout main activities:
The 500 - a monthly competition loosely based on the month's genre topic. The prompt announcement starts the clock and writers have 72 hours to create a short story 100-500 words long. Entries are posted live for public vote.
The Writer's Games - perhaps the biggest and most well known of The Writer's Workout competitions, the Games consists of six weekly prompts (called Events). Registration is required, judgement is private, every entry earns points and receives feedback, and winners are published in an anthology of the portion.
Writing Arcade - a year-long extravaganza where writers earn tickets as they write, complete challenges, help others, and work toward achieving their goals. Tickets are redeemable for prizes throughout the year.
Founded in 2014 with just 44 members, The Writer's Workout is now global with members in more than twenty countries across six continents. We strive to provide a motivating atmosphere that fosters self-growth and development through encouraging language and education. We want to help you be a better writer.
