Have you participated in the FaithWriters Writing Challenge lately? It’s a fabulous way to improve your writing , get used to writing to a deadline and word count, and even get some encouragement and feedback on your entries. Lots of FaithWriters have grown tremendously as writers by entering the Writing Challenge. So give it a try – or come on back!

This quarter, the topics are animal-related sayings, so there is A LOT of room for creativity! Feel free to let your imagination go wild give some of these phrases a try as topics (and you don’t have to have a single animal in your story!).

Not familiar with the Writing Challenge, or need a refresher?

  • *Gold and Platinum members may enter – though silver members get four credits total to enter (a chance to try it out before upgrading their membership if they’d like – click here to do so)
  • *A new topic is presented on Thursday mornings at 11am NY time, and you have until the following Thursday at 10:59 am NY time to enter your piece.
  • *Your entry must be between 150 and 750 words and must be conceived and written after the topic is announced. Entries may be in any style or genre, and they do not need to be overtly Christian in message. However, they should at least reflect a Christian outlook and should not be overly violent or sensual.
  • *The best entry in each level for the entire 10-week quarter will receive a $50 cash prize at the end of the quarter (four prizes total)

Want more details? Check out the submission rules, guide for choosing a level, the main challenge page, and/or the Writing Challenge forums. We’re about halfway through the quarter, so there’s still plenty of time to give it a try.

Have you entered yet this quarter? Planning to write something up? I am. 🙂
