Writers of the Future Vol. 31 Cover Reveal!

So it looks like the cover for this year’s Writers of the Future collection has been revealed! (They kept ours secret for the big reveal at the award ceremony, so I hope I’m not spilling any beans by posting this…)

WOTF Vol 31 (1)

Since this year’s winners are currently about halfway through their workshop week–the awards are on Sundays these days, not Saturdays anymore–I’ve been thinking about my own experience at WOTF.

Before I went to the Writers of the Future week in 2007, I read everything I could about the contest and the workshop week from the blogs and websites of previous winners. When I came back I decided that I should put together something similar that would hopefully be of interest and use to future winners and those entering the contest.

Since these posts first went live in 2007 and 2008 they have consistently been amongst the most popular pages on my blog–so I guess they have been of interest to people!

I thought it made sense to have an easily accessible one-stop-shop for my WOTF week journal, so please find all the relevant links below. I hope they are of use to you. My advice: enter the contest. After all, someone has to win every year: why not YOU?
