Here they are…the list of winners from the preliminary rounds.  I want to apologize to all of the entries who never made it into the ring this year, there was just too many for me to accommodate.  But as I said before, WRiTE CLUB SKIRMISHES will continue on after the official contest is over, so you’ll still get your opportunity for some awesome input.

As for these 36, what’s in store for them and more importantly, what do they need to get ready for?  Here’s the breakdown. 

Round 1 (Oct. 22 – Nov 2) - Original submission - 18 bouts spread across three separate blogs (MWF) for 2 weeks  = 18 winners

Round 2 (Nov 5-9) - Original submission (edited)  -  9 bouts spread across three separate blogs (MWF) = 9 winners + 1 wildcard winner*

Round 3 (Nov 12-16) - 2nd submission - 5 bouts  (M-F) = 5 winners + 1 wildcard*

Round 4 (Nov 19-23) - 2nd submission - 3 bouts  (MWF) = 3 winners + 1 wildcard*

Round 5 (Nov 26 – 30) - 2nd submission (edited) - 2 bouts (T TH) = 2 winners

FINAL  -  3rd submission - 2 contestants = CHAMPION  (this round will be judged by agents/editors/authors)

*Wildcard winners will be chosen from among the losing entries by selecting the one that received the most amount of votes.

As you can see, the contestants will need to prepare not only edited versions of their original submissions, but two other ORIGINAL submissions if they are lucky enough to advance through the rounds.  I advise all of you NOT TO WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE.

To say that the preliminary rounds limped to the finish line would be an understatement, with some of the final rounds garnering a disappointing 30 votes.  I’m hoping that the play-offs will bring forth a renewed excitement and a landslide of votes.  Please help me in spreading the word about the play-offs and our march towards crowning a new champion.  

Tomorrow the gloves come off and the real brawls begin!  Good luck to everyone.

  2. It must be exciting to see your pen name up there -- congratulations to all the winners! And for those who didn't quite get the votes, and I must number myself among that Sgt. Pepper crowd, I pat you on the back, too -- for having the chutzpah to WRiTE it out in the first place!

    Well done, all contestants and reviewers -- and well done to those who have made it this far!

  3. Congrats to all the winners! Can't wait for the next round.

    I must say I'm guilty of not voting in the last rounds. Between edits, querying and work, my time really got limited to the point where I barely visited any blogs. Sorry!

  5. Congratulations and best of luck to all the second-rounders!

    I've managed to vote in every bout so far, and I'll try hard to keep up with the upcoming bouts on the three sites.

    Bring on the bouts!
