The Bash A Writer Contest  September 9, 2007 - October 9, 2007

Reading and Deliberating


Have you ever walked into a bookstore and read a piece of literature so bad that it almost gave you cancer? Did knowing that the writer was ACTUALLY PUBLISHED make you want to jab a fork in your thigh? Were you ever the solitary voice screaming "this sucks!!!" over a never ending flock of fans crowding your local bookstore just to get their hands on the newest installment of a series that wore out its welcome the second it hit the shelves?

Well, here's your chance for some revenge. Submit a poem, essay, short story, or any other genre of literature illustrating why a particular writer is a talentless bum who never should've even picked up a pen, nevermind sold a book. You can bash the writer, the publishing industry that made them, or the fans who, for some god unknown reason, worship the ground this writer walks on. Vulgarity and gratuitous anger are highly encouraged, (though certainly not necessary) as the award will go to the writer who spews the most venom in their targets' direction. The winners will have the option of me actually mailing their work to the targeted writer.





The writer is getting a restraining order against you. The writer is getting a restraining order against you.
You made the writer cry. You made the writer cry.
You made the writer sniffle a little. You made the writer sniffle a little.
