Challenge is a competition that challenges writers
around the world to create short stories
(1,000 words max.) based on genre, location, and object assignments.
Each writer will participate in at least 2 writing challenges and as
many as 4 depending on how well they place in each challenge.
When the competition begins, writers are placed in groups where they
will be judged against other writers within their same group.
Each group receives its own unique genre, location, and object
assignments (see past examples
After 2 challenges, the top 5 writers that score the highest advance
to the next challenge. In Challenge #3, writers are
placed in new groups and given a new genre, location, and object
assignment. The top 4 writers from each of the groups in
Challenge #3 advance to the fourth and final challenge of the
competition where they are given the final genre, location, and
object assignment and compete for thousands in cash and prizes.
