Welcome!

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.

July Workshop: Flash Fiction Month

Thu Jul 10, 2014, 1:51 PM


Hello everyone!

So apologies for starting this months workshop slightly late, I am very busy offline (I have my wedding next month and have a 20 month old!) and got sidelined from the internet as a result. It shows really this group needs to expand to more workshop hosts- so if you are interested in hosting a workshop, drop the group a note and we'll discuss what this entails. 


The Workshop Brief


So this month, deviantART celebrates Flash Fiction Month, and I expect many of you are already participating over at Flash-Fic-Month . The challenge is for participants to write a piece of flash fiction every day throughout the month of July. Simple right? If you want to join the full challenge, don't worry about being a week late and check out their How to guide to get involved.

So what does this have to do with Writers-Workshop? Well we would like for you guys to take the opportunity to select just one piece you have written for Flash-Fic-Month OR write a piece of Flash Fiction even if you're not participating in the full challenge.

If you haven't ever written flash fiction before, it would be worth checking out this brilliant guide by prolific dA "Flasher" SRSmith 





Workshop Rules

 

Bullet; Blue This workshop is for Flash fiction only. 

Bullet; Blue This means there is a word limit of greater than 55 and fewer 1000 words. We will be looking at word count as a requirement for this workshop, so do state the wordcount in your artists comments.

:bulletblue: You may submit no more than 1 flash fiction piece per week, so in total up to three pieces so make the most of this. Please remember if you do submit, please take the time to review and critique other peoples submissions.

:bulletblue: PLEASE state in your artists comments the piece is for this workshop. We've been getting lots of submission requests for non-workshop pieces and don't want to miss you out. This requirement will be for any workshop from now on so please remember to include this!


How to Submit


The gallery folder will be open straight away. You will be able to submit either via sta.sh or by going into the gallery folder and submit. Your piece will go through a voting system to check it is applicable to this workshop, so stating so in your artists comments really helps!

Please note that we ONLY accept submissions for the current workshop and only members can submit to our folders. If people submit works not for the workshop, we will communicate with you this is not acceptable and continuous submission attempts will resolve in your removal from our group.



What Happens Next?


You have between now and July 31st to submit your piece(s) to the workshop. Late submissions will be accepted, however we cannot guarantee your piece will be read by others.

Each week between now and the end of July, this journal will be refreshed with the submissions to this workshop. We would expect members, especially fellow participants to take some time to read the pieces and offer feedback and thoughts on their pieces. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in this journal!

OK...I just posted the story.  "Creatures"  And now I'm wondering: Did I do that right?  It's late...I'm muzzy.  In theory it should be aimed at the "Metamorphosis" workshop prompt.
