Group Writer Challenge


Those who understand the value of a good writing community will LOVE the Group Writer Challenge! You can register with a team of six or as a solo writer and we'll place you with a great group. For this challenge, you'll find a writing prompt in the box on this page. Create your tale, then work with your group as a peer-review system. Revise your piece based on their notes and submit! 


Each writer receives an individual critique. Individual scores contribute to the group score; we'll drop the lowest scores so every group has the same number of contributions. The group with the highest overall score wins! Register throughout March for the challenge release in April. All revised pieces are due by midnight, UTC, on the cusp of April 20. You can check the conversion to your location here:
