Last Day to Sign-Up – Short Story Challenge

Are you a procrastinator? Been thinking about signing up for the Short in Six Short Story Challenge, but haven’t yet? Well, you have one LAST day … and this isn’t an April Fools’ Joke.

Seriously, we’re starting April 2 because superstitious me didn’t want to kick off on April 1. There still is room, and there still is time.

Join published authors Louisa Bacio and Nikki Prince in the Short in Six, Short Story Challenge. That’s a short story in six months, under guidance, with a support group, check-in dates, critique groups and prizes!

At the beginning of the workshop, each contributor will focus on a story, genre and potential publisher in a database. On a monthly basis, we’ll check in with word count, and submission progress. (Ideally, if the participant has a blog, we also can feature a blog-hop of the progress.)

Need more? Over the last four years, Nikki and I collectively have sold and published more than 40 short stories and novellas. (That’s not counting the full-length books.)

Note: Only serious sign-ups, please. We’d like a high completion and success rate. That means, we’d rather you not lurk.

Here are the details:
