Have you jumped in to the Writing Challenge? We just started week four of the current quarter yesterday, and things are underway – including the ability to get ratings reports on your entries.

If you are a Platinum member  (click here to upgrade), you can receive up to three free judges’ ratings reports per quarter on any entry that does not place in the Editor’s Choice. Simply use the simple form to make the request between the time winners are announced and the following Thursday (one week window to request the report). So, if you entered the “Fold” challenge and didn’t place in the EC, get your ratings report request in soon!

Besides the ratings reports, another great way to improve your writing is to read others’ entries – and there is a great opportunity for that in the Writing Challenge as well. While last week’s “Clarify” entries are being judged (and anonymous), you can give them a read today – and give folks those wonderful yellow boxes of feedback. And watch for the brick throwing thread on the Forums- an opportunity to post a link to your own entry for feedback (and to check out others’).

And, of course, there’s actually ENTERING the Writing Challenge. This week’s topic is “Mix,” and there is plenty of room for your piece on the topic (review the guidelines here if you need a refresher course). Platinum and Gold members can enter each week if desired – and even Silver members have a total of four opportunities to give the Challenge a try.

Rise to the (Writing) Challenge!
