Write a 1500-2000 worded tale. No restriction except for the word count. 

The person who consistently gives the most insightful reviews is the winner of this month’s event. Submission of a story is not mandatory for reviewers, but preferred. Reviewing is open to one and all and can be of any length and must be posted in the comment section of the story, when posted on the FB timeline of the Writers Room. 

Reviewing a story is a thankless job, but a necessary one. Imagine going to an interview with spinach stuck between your teeth. Embarrassing, ain’t? Now imagine presenting our stories to the world with awkward/avoidable mistakes. However, as a writer we are too involved with the story, to spot its shortcoming. This is where reviews can help.

An honest review will identify them and help the writer polish the story and take it to the next level. And this month’s event is all about reviewing each other stories. For most writers, reviewing is a secondary skill, this prompt is an effort to help the writers in upgrading their secondary arsenal.

–> This is an open event for anyone to participate in.
