November 9th, 2016

It's a disheartening day in the writing community. I'm feeling what can only be described as shell-shocked today. It feels like this came out of nowhere. But I did see a tweet that helped. 

I'm gonna wake up and keep trying to do good and so are you and nobody gets to vote on that.

I feel the need to say publicly in very simple terms that I will do the best I can to promote diversity and own voices in every contest I host. To support writers. To encourage the writing community. To show that love can trump hate.

So I'll continue to do all the good I can, for as long as I can, for as many as I can. Thank you, Hillary. 

Contest Mission: Our mission is to showcase the work of diverse and talented novelists, while providing a learning environment that unites the writing community through knowledge, kindness, and a little friendly kompetition.
