Okay, so you guys mostly sucked at doing woman-stories, big-time. So now we make it harder.

Check Your Cis Privilege in Swaziland

Noir detective stories set in off-the-beaten-path locales, on this planet. Mild cyberpunk allowed, nothing too crazy. Except for sebmojo, no cyberpunk for you. No able-bodied straight male Caucasian American characters are allowed anywhere in the story. All characters must come from one or more specific groups which are underrepresented in literature. If the writer chooses to write about a straight white American guy in a wheelchair, the experience of being chair-bound better come through authentically. Points accrue the further away you get from your own cultural group, which you must specify for full points. Extra points for "recombocultural" protagonists.

For even more "extra points," you can do a dramatic reading of another contestant's piece. Deadline is the same for everything, so if the other goon's thing is what you want to read and there's ten minutes left, well you better be good at using Audacity and have fast upload speeds to Tindeck. Vocaroo is allowed. [If you want to lose.]

It always seems impossible until its done. - Nelson Mandela

Get to writing, jerkies.
