Writer's Games Anthologies

Each portion of The Writer's Games results in a new volume of our Games Anthology: 72 Hours of Insanity. Writers register in advance and prepare for six weeks of surprise challenges and feedback for every entry. Each submission is judged blind and scored based on the utilization of the Event's Core Concepts. This means the winners of each Event displayed superior understanding of the foundations important to all genres of fiction. 

Gamers live around the world and the writers published here are all ages and skill levels. These anthologies display an aptitude in different genres and writing styles. 

The Writer's Workout maintains publication rights to winning Writer's Games entries for one year.
