WRiTE CLUB 2018 - SAVE WEEK

One of your favorite submissions lost its opening bout…by a hair no less. Oh, the pain and injustice! Never fear…there is still hope.

Recognizing that the random way contestants are pitted against one another in the opening round (to keep things fair) might, at times, match up some of the best writers and knock someone out earlier than maybe they should – we came up with a way to give everybody a second chance.  It’s called SAVE WEEK.

How this works is simple.  Below is a list of all the submissions from the first round that lost their bout (complete with link to their bout), grouped by week. The 3rd week will be filled in once voting has closed for those bouts. In the comments below you can detail ONE SUBMISSION FROM EACH WEEK, three in total, that you believe deserves to move forward to the next round. The same voting rules apply here as in the opening round. Voting in a preliminary round is not a requirement – anyone can vote. Critiquing isn’t required except to explain why you feel your selection should continue with the competition.

Wait until Thursday noon when all the slots are filled in, then you’ll have until noon on SUNDAY, MAY 13th to make your selections.

WEEK 1
Bout #1 - Groovy Girl
Bout #2 - Jakkym
Bout #3 - Richard Knight
Bout #4 - Windsong
Bout #5 -  BananaGram

WEEK 2
Bout #6 - BooksRgood4u

Leave your votes in the comment section below.

The next week will bring us the Cage bouts - where you’ll see a three-way brawl, beginning on May 14th. See you then!

  6. Apologies for being long-winded, found out about this late and want to leave quick critique as it's hard to believe these are the "losers." They're amazing.

    I got a huge laugh out of the raging Grandpa. Though I would have felt less unsettled with half the profanity, the story felt real and down to earth.
    Vote 1-  Groovy Girl

    I felt the painful boredom and angst of wanting to escape this suffocating small town. The wonder the MC has with Lois is apparent and reminded me of many teen girls back in my day.
    Vote 2- Canister McIntosh

    Week three's entries were the first entries I read and one stuck with me as someone who's battled depression. It's hard to make a difficult topic so interesting, but I could see that roach moving across the floor and feel the sores from having laid too long. Capturing that transition of getting out of depression so well deserves to make this writer move forward.
    Vote 3- MujerConHistorias
