Happenings in the Literature Community

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 18, 2014, 10:35 AM


There are a lot of things going on in the literature community right now so I thought it would be a good idea to share these resources and events with you. I will update this regularly as new events come and go. So if you know of anything going on or have an event you'd like featured please let me know!

The Scratching Post Edition 2: CritiquesTWM Scratching Post
:wave: hi there everyone! I’m Rose (aka InklingsOfOblivion) and today I bring you TWM’s latest edition of the Scratching Post which focuses on GIVING critiques.
Before we embark on our journey together, I’ve collected up some articles that have been written by others: what I love is that everyone has a slightly different take on critiquing , bringing a new perspective and fresh ideas to the table.
LiliWrites – this one also has a whole bunch of other articles at the end, be sure to check it out

Writing Resources


Synergy
Live-Love-Write has a new program designed to provide participants with somebody they can count on for help and readership. Participants will be assigned in pairs, and each member in a pair will tutor and critique the other, help with inspiration and writing, and participate in monthly projects and contests.

SixWordStories
A great group to check out, especially if you are low on prompt ideas. They have a large list of some here: sixwordstories.deviantart.com/…

Which Submission best demonstrates the Snow Shoveling Showdown prompt best? 

55%
11 deviants said The Shoveling Takeover“Brian, get up! You have to clear the driveway before school!”
Brian groaned into his pillow and pulled his blanket tightly around his body. After last night’s blizzard the last thing he wanted was to head outside to shovel snow.
“Come on! You don’t want to be late!”
Slowly, he rolled out of bed, got dressed and trudged down the stairs. His mom had some hot milk and french toast ready for him.
“Remember to shovel the Kovalenkos’ driveway, too; they’re too old to do it themselves,” she said.
He made a face but didn’t say anything. Breakfast finished, he bundled up and went outside.
The storm had outdone itself. At least 30cm of snow covered the driveway to form a smooth, white slope. He almost felt guilty ruining the smooth surface. It was a good thing classes in winter began an hour later than usual; clearing two driveways would take a while. Wanting nothing more than to get out of the cold, he finished their own drivewa

9 deviants said Thug Life in the Snow GhettoHe.
He was pug-faced and freckled.  
Red.
Hair, hat, shovel, and face--now.
“This is my turf.”  
Spat.
He must have been the Poet Laureate of snow-shoveling,
Grand guard-captain of the igloo,
Zeus of Mount Icympia.
I.
I was shivering chunky ice-snow off the steps.
Blue.
Lips, hands, toes, and shovel.
Who was I to argue with God and his gang of bright, snot-icicle angels?
“Okay. Bye.”
Chuckled.
Turned indoors--a foiled Samaritan.
Guilty pleasure cup of cocoa,
and a front-seat view to a private theater of the newest reality show:
“Snow Thug’s Life.”

Is there some issue with accepting submissions for this week's prompt? Mine has been awaiting approval for a few days now (I'm afraid it might expire :/ )
