At FaithWriters, we are always trying to come up with ways to make the site and the features we offer better and more beneficial for you guys. Deb Porter, our lovely Challenge Coordinator, just announced this week that there will now be a small token awarded to a random entrant of the Weekly Writing Challenge.

One entry each week will be chosen, completely at random and sight unseen, and the author of that entry will receive a free ratings feedback report on that particular entry. Ratings feedback reports look something like this:

They have changed a little since the new judging system was introduced last quarter; however, the information is still in the same format and very clear (and, hopefully, very helpful).

The randomly chosen author will be contacted a few days after entries close, and asked if they would like to receive this free report. We won’t force the prize onto anyone, as we know some people may not want to know. However, the option is there for the weekly winner if they would like to see how they did. This will only be offered to the randomly chosen member. If he or she chooses not to accept the feedback, another name will not be selected.

The report will not be available until after the Challenge winners have been announced the following Thursday, and the prize is not transferable. It can not be exchanged for cash, given to another person, or used on a different entry.

What makes this little bonus prize rather special is the fact that the judging each week is done by professional editors. So the winner will be receiving what is, in essence, a professional mini-assessment. And that makes it definitely worth winning.

Pretty cool, right? So now there’s even more incentive for you to enter the Weekly Writing Challenge. By entering, you will:

*be honing your skill

* receive valuable feedback from other members

* have a chance for your work published in an upcoming quarterly anthology

* possibly walk away with a cash prize at the end of the Challenge year

*and the potential to win professional feedback on your entry!

So what are you waiting for? Enter this week’s Challenge HERE
