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.

Ye Pirate Tales: results

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 4, 2014, 11:54 AM
“His stories were what frightened people worst of all. Dreadful stories they were--about hanging, and walking the plank, and storms at sea, and the Dry Tortugas, and wild deeds and places on the Spanish Main. By his own account he must have lived his life among some of the wickedest men that God ever allowed upon the sea, and the language in which he told these stories shocked our plain country people almost as much as the crimes that he described."

I apologise for the delay in these results, but here are the winners of Ye Pirate tales contest!

Trouble on the Dead Strait    The sailing master was dreaming of warm, sandy beaches when the cabin boy  shook him awake. “What the hell are you doing, boy? It’s not even sunup.” He started to raise his hand to deliver a hard slap to the boy, but his pale face and wide eyes caused him to hesitate. “What is it?”
    “It’s the helmsman, sir. He’s taking us into The Strait!”
    “What?” He found himself throwing open the door to the deck before the sleep had cleared properly from his eyes. The sky was still pitch dark; sunrise was still hours away. And sure enough, that damned fool helmsman was steering them right toward the Dead Strait. He marched over and sent him sprawling with one punch. “What the hell do you think you’re doing?”
    The helmsman rubbed his jaw and glared at the deck. “Shaving two days off our trip, that’s what. Your route takes us right by this strait, a

The Legend of the Haunted LighthouseNot many folk know of the lighthouse on Saber Island. But not many folk know of the island itself, for it's a hidden place, a good distance off the trade routes and surrounded by vicious currents that will smash your ship against the saber-sharp cliffs that have given cause for its name, so that if you get anywhere near enough to find the island, you'll have no way of ever getting back to tell the tale of it. Well, that goes for regular folk, who come across it when they get lost to sea, not for hardened sea dogs who go about looking for trouble. An island that's hard to find and dangerous to approach is a boon to any pirate, and there's never been a time since man sailed these seas that there wasn't a pirate den on Saber Island. And legend has it, some three hundred years ago, the island was home to a pirate known as Captain John Cutlass, the greatest pirate to ever rule over Saber Island.
Captain Cutlass was a strange man, strange as they come. Some say he was no man at all, b
Tyler's Defence or The Devil CatI do not speak often of my ambition… or is it only a dream?  If you understand anything, I daresay you can understand why.  I am expected to marry a lawyer, not to become one.
Even so, I was once apprenticed to Mr Craven.  Between us, we had ideas that would revolutionise the justice system, but that wasn’t what brought us together.  It was just that we were both desperate.  Craven hadn’t even the excuse of being undereducated and overly sentimental, as I did.  According to Phillip, I was (and am) both ignorant and stupid.
‘Ignorance you might prove,’ I told him, ‘but then my intelligence has never been tested, so any lack thereof you cannot prove.’
‘Don’t be silly, Meg,’ Phillip said.  After all, he scarcely dealt in proof.
Of course, Craven only took on hopeless cases.  This was because he wanted to help the helpless.  It was also because anyone with any hope could a
