WYRM’S Gauntlet Champion!

I’m delighted to announce that I am the winner of┬áthe 2014 edition of WYRM’s Gauntlet, a unique writing contest that describes itself like this:

Our Gauntlet works in four rounds of action, and is a mixture of critique and fiction-writing to challenge our esteemed Gauntleteers. The rounds are all different, and designed to bring out your best–your best review, your best short story, or something you didn’t see coming.

Iron Chef-style challenges with brutal deadlines winnowed the initial 15 challengers down to just three in the final round. You can read about all the different challenges here. In the last round, we had to write stories about an object that manipulates reality in some way, and my story “Practice” won! Hopefully I’ll publish it one of these days and you will read it.

Thanks to all the WYRMs and the other contestants for a fun Gauntlet. The organizers give cash prizes and don’t publish the story or take any rights, so as far as I can tell they do this for completely selfless reasons. Thanks for supporting emerging writers, guys!

    Hi Julian,

    Loved the excerpt from your story, which I just read! A well-deserved prize.
