We extend a hearty welcome to writers, critics, and the internet at large. We are WYRM’s Gauntlet if you didn’t already know, and we’re here to announce that our competition has an exciting new format.
Round 1 / the First Challenge will have a new, much more comfortable deadline of four weeks. It will also be a writing challenge, so we hope to see more avid writers and frequent submitters of short fiction take a stab at this.
Round 4 / The Final Challenge will now only consist of a one-week deadline. That’s cutting your usual time in half, but upping the ante here will make the home stretch all the more exciting!
As always, we’re thrilled to see each and every one of you come out this year. Let’s have some fun!
