For those of you who are competitive, and like to write on the fly, and want to get feedback, here's an interesting contest for spec fic and general fiction: "WYRM’s Gauntlet features a new writing or reviewing challenge every round. All are invited to enter the first round (until the deadline hits, or we are filled), 8 will move on to the second, 5 to the third, and just 3 to the final round. As you advance through the Gauntlet, fewer and fewer challengers will remain, so judging must become shrewder. Challenges are not announced in advance, but as a new round opens. So pay attention." Length: no limit, Fee: none. According to Ralan, the prizes are: "1st=$150; 2nd=$75; 3rd=$50, +in-depth critique for all 3." No reprints, electronic submissions only, do read the contest rules because they're extensive. Opens October 4th, 2014; Deadline: October 18th, 2014.


  1. Thank you for the shout out, Lynn! We really appreciate it. (And our rules wanted to thank you for calling them extensive. ;))

    1. My pleasure, Steven (and the extensive remark was not meant as a criticism; rather as a warning to hopefuls so they won't submit without checking them first. Hassle-saver for both sides, I think. :)

  2. We totally took it as a compliment.
