After last year's inaugural Matryoshka challenge, we've also removed word counts from all but the difficult-level challenge.
The difficult challenge will require a story that is a minimum of 3, words. If you want to try the difficult challenge without bothering with the word count, please feel free!
However, fanworks for the difficult challenge that do not meet the 3,word minimum will not receive the special stamp for the difficult challenge. They will receive a participant stamp. For fanworks other than fiction: Although we are a writers' group, we always encourage a variety fanworks in response to our challenges.
If you want to make fanart or another type of fanwork for this challenge, you may use the prompts in the Matryoshka format building on your fanwork with each new prompt or you may use the prompts individually to create a series of fanworks flash fanworks are fine for this or you can open all of the prompts at once and create a fanwork that addresses all of them using either the prompt, the prompt title, or a mixture of both.
Fanworks are due by November 10, in order to receive a stamp. Late fanworks are, as always, welcome but do not receive stamps. TVTrope's slasher movie entry was an invaluable source of inspiration in designing this online writers guild and titling some of the prompts.
Challenges have been a part of the SWG since our group was formed in Before the archive, there were challenges. Before References or any special projects or B2MeM or any of the myriad things we've done over the last decade-plus, there were challenges.
From throughwe offered at least one challenge every month. Inwe switched to a quarterly format. Challenges were always entirely self-directed: You did not have to sign up, post your work by a certain date, or meet any other requirements. Beginning in Januarywe instituted several changes to the SWG challenges.
We reverted back to the monthly format. But more importantly, we also modified our participation rules to encourage participation from both authors and commenters. Please read the guidelines below to participate in our challenges.
Participants--both authors and reviewers--will receive a small monthly prize for their participation. Please note that every challenge that has ever been offered by the SWG will continue to remain on the siteavailable for perusal and use by creators of fanworks who are looking for inspiration.
Even if the deadline is passed, you are welcome to use the challenges listed on our site. And reviews of past challenge stories are always welcome and always receive a reward for that month.
Again, the guidelines below have full details. How to Participate New challenges will be released monthly on the 15th.
