The WCDR is not stopping at these two powerful, evocative collections. Why would they? Both competitions have been highly successful, and both brought some beautiful prose into the WCDR fold from around the world.
The next WCDR Prose Competition was just announced recently. In keeping with the theme of the letter W…which, to me, is a wonderfully slithery letter with alliteration of its own…their competition this time around will be WHISPERED WORDS! How fun!
Once the Whispered Words prose competition is announced on their website, I will provide a link. In the mean time, I CAN tell you that the contest prizes are extremely generous, the entry fee is reasonable and the prestige of being within the pages of one of these wonderful WCDR anthologies is tremendous! (I was lucky enough to be granted an honorable mention in the first anthology, WICKED WORDS, for my experimental horror story Rabacheeko.)
For those of you who are ARTISTS, please keep in mind that not only are the words in these anthologies collected through competition, but so to is the cover art. And, so far, the cover art competition judges have done an incredibly stellar job awarding their artists. I think you’ll agree with me when I say that the covers thus far are both beautiful!
