The New Year means a new round of the writing challenge. There are three different options available:
- Five Page Program – Member submit 5 pages per week for review by their group members. They meet once a week at the same time on Skype to give verbal feedback and follow-up by sending back the marked, reviewed MS.
- Up to 25 Pages – Member submit up to a maximum of 25 pages per week. Review and meetings as for 5 pages.
- Book under the Bed – Members submit an over view of a previously completed book (a synopsis of up to 10 pages) and then group members decide how they will proceed. They might meet on Skype to discuss the plot and characters before the rewrite begins. They might exchange full books, or agreed upon chunks with feedback being given individually after an agreed upon period of time. (One month for a whole book for example.) This is process is in itself a work in progress.
The January program will be starting in the next couple of weeks. We have two new challenge groups going forward. If you are interested in the challenge program, please read the information and guidelines and let Mahrie know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
