Welcome to #Writers-Workshop. We're a literature group dedicated to helping our members grow through writing practice, critique and discussion. You can find out more about the group and how our workshops run on the About Us page.

Looking for the rules? You can find out what we expect of our members in the description on the About Us page. You're only likely to incur the wrath of our staff if you disregard the workshop structure (eg. by submitting deviations that aren't for workshops) or otherwise can't be bothered to make an effort. If you're confused about anything, feel free to note the group (or a staff member) and we'll be happy to help.

:new: We're starting to see some submissions coming in! I am saving them all in a collection so do check them out! There are still plenty of spaces, so if you're curiously interested, then do sign up! :D Don't forget to spread the word too!

Previous: Wow 41 participants so far! There's lots of space, so it you want a story, come ask for a story! Also a few people have asked if they can submit a poem, I have no issue with this, so please if you want to poem instead you can!


It's been a long time since The Ancient Egyptian Deity challenge and the Poetic Spice-rack challenge and I thought it was time for another forum frolic because:

1. I enjoy them
2. It gets people writing. 

Did you know there are over 200 Grimm's Fairy tales? There's always lots of challenges that recreate fairy tales; modernise them, change endings and transform them into new and exciting versions. This is partly why they've stood the test of time. So lets keep this challenge simple and make our own exciting takes on them.

The basic rule for this challenge is to change the genders of all the characters in each of your story (can even be transgender, genderless etc if you want to). How you change or use the story is entirely up to you. You could retell the fairytale in your own way, or just take small elements from it to create your new tale.

How to join the challenge:

2. I will give you a Grimms' Fairy Tale from the list on Wikipedia.
3. You will then do a bit of research (at least read the tale, they're not that long and widely available to read online!) and write a story inspired by that tale as per above.
4. Post your results here!
5. I will collect them all, post a journal article and feature the results!
6. Spread the word! I'm posting this as a journal too to encourage lots of participation. Hopefully you'll look at other peoples pieces too to see how they took the challenge :)

Doing NaNoWriMo but want to play? These challenges usually last a few months before they dry up, so feel free to call "in" and save the writing till you've met your 50K
