Our first workshop guest

Besides being a hands-on literature GD, GunShyMartyr is a wonderful storyteller. To know more about him, read <a…>this interview or better still, browse his gallery.

For our first workshop, GunShyMartyr has a prose challenge. Read ahead!

Twisted Stories

:icongunshymartyr:: "Write a short story with an unexpected ending. It can be a twist, or a shocking surprise, or a final paragraph that shifts everything that came before it into a new light.

"It would be best to plan out the details before you sit down and write it all out, but if you can't stand doing story plans then go with whatever works for you. Also, anyone who ends their story with "and it was all a dream" will be shot. Really."

A note from Writers-Workshop: There is no word limit. However, please make sure your entry isn't unnecessarily long. All descriptions, characterisations, sub-plots and tangents must be relevant to the short story. This workshop isn't about boring your workshop host, it's about writing a polished piece of prose. Also, keep an eye out for poor spelling and grammar. Happy writing. :)

How to enter
