    With this bulletin, the Gauntlet will close out for another year. For this writer it will be a memorable one for a couple of reasons. The first being that we set a record for the number of entrants into the competition at 58, and because I was going so hard with my WYRM crew that I landed myself in the Goddamn hospital. I guess I know to be ready…[Read more]

  • Gauntlet Fan #1: You know, I’m surprised they keep letting us announce the Gauntlet Champions every year. I mean, it’s an honor for fanatics like us.
    Gauntlet Fan #2: Seeing the way you carry on, I’m more surprised they haven’t kicked us both out of the venue by now.
    Fan #1: I’m sure I don’t know what you’re talking about. Now, gimme your hot…

  • Your two-week writing time limit has expired. It’s amazing how quickly the Final Round has come and gone! As of my latest check, we have received all three final challenge entries. That’s the good news. The bad news is that only one of you can become champion. So it’s time to find out who is able to strike fear into our hearts.

    While we go off to…[Read more]

    2 days to go. I wonder if it really is enough time…

    We have come to the end of the line, to the brink, to the breaking point. Three brave Gauntleteers remain to take on this last challenge. You will find it both simplistic and difficult. As a reminder, there is a two-week time limit, and we’ll be paying special attention to how well you follow instructions this time. No do-overs, extensions, or…[Read more]

    Judges faced an interesting and difficult task this time around to say the least. But, after visiting and revisiting your efforts, and the efforts of Cashier, we have reached a ranking. Pat yourselves on the back if your name does not appear below; you’ve come a long way, writer. In no special order, these following Gauntleteers will move on to…[Read more]

    And this concludes our Third Challenge. What a week. We retire to our cave of deliberation to find the final 3 Gauntleteers who will face the last trial.

    Be back here for results on October 19th!

    Onward.

    “The Chemicals Between Us”

    Your next challenge is to read and critique “The Alchemist’s Feather” by Erin Cashier, which appeared in the September 10, 2009 issue of Beneath Ceaseless Skies. No frills, no college essay format, just critique a peer.

    The Alchemist’s Feather

    In a review/critique, we look for all the things that make you tick as a…[Read more]

    We Gauntlet judges don’t always find an easy consensus, but we were unanimous about one thing. The entries always have a way of getting better through the rounds. That’s when it becomes our challenge. So, after various tie-breaker rituals and infighting, we have the results of the 2nd Challenge!

    In no special order, those who have advanced to f…[Read more]

    We can hardly believe it ourselves, but that clock you hear in the background, permeating everything you do, has just ticked its final tick. For this challenge at least.

    So concludes Round 2, and your contribution to the “Live with It” prompt. We are off, excitedly, to read your efforts, and come up with a final 5 Gauntleteers. It’s getting fierc…[Read more]

    And that’s a wrap on the 1st Challenge. Let’s hear it for the record number of entrants (58) we’ve had this year! With Round 1 over, sign-ups have closed for this year’s Gauntlet. We’re moving on with a heap of reading, and also with eliminations (you know, the fun part).

    Catch us on Friday, Sep 27th, with 1st Round results. Remember that of all…[Read more]

  • Steven Lugo replied to the topic 1st Challenge in the forum Gauntleteers 2019 1 year ago

    I can assure you that we have received the entries of all concerned parties. Some even thought it would be best to enter two or three times!

    And an ‘essay contest’ eh? If you fail to escape round 1 then I guess you could call it that mwahahaha.

  • Yes…plenty.

  • Welcome, newcomers!

    We’ve received several entries already, and the round isn’t quite over, but we’d like to know something. How goes the battle?

  • There is no word count limit!

    Hawthorn, you did indeed, so I changed your role also.

  • Hey there, Bobberu, looks like you also had signed up as a ‘Gauntlet Spectator’, which explains why you were unable to submit. Honestly thinking of scrapping the spectator role/option. It just seems to confuse people, and no one uses it for its designed purpose anyhow. (To heckle Gauntleteers without having to actually enter!)

    In any event, I…[Read more]

    If you are hearing this, then you have made it to an arena not many have had the guts to see. You are in the one true Gauntlet, where dreams and nightmares become reality, and cocky wordsmiths find out how good they actually are. Get ready, get set, get into the grind. The rounds hit hard, and they don’t slow down for a…[Read more]
