With 2011 winding down and all of the prep everyone has been doing for the new year, WriYe 2012 seems to be shaping up to be one of our best years yet! The slightly-smaller mod team is looking forward to writing, editing, and procrastinating alongside all 1,000+ members this year!
Signups for 2012 are ongoing and will be open until 01 December 2012 when the boards are reset for the 2013 WriYe season (see links in the About Page for information and to sign up). All participants are welcome; we are looking forward to having you become a part of our community and thank you for your continual support and participation throughout the year.
Right now on the forums we have three year-round challenges for you to participate in: the RWCC, the Breaking Outta Your Box challenge, and the always-exciting Genre Cup. We'd love to have more participants, so feel free to stop by! Every month, we have the Full Moon Madness Challenge, as well as a different monthly challenge for participants.
As for workshops, well... We think you're going to really love what we've worked up this year. There will be multiple mini-workshops that you can participate in as you feel like, run by a multitude of different staff members. There is a Request Thread if there's anything you're needing work on and hope someone will be able to help you with and all of the workshops will be located in the Workshops subforum (under challenges!)
Both 2010's and 2011's Big Yellow Board Challenge are alive only in the Archives, but feel free to peruse said archives and work through the activities on your own! BYB was a year-long workshop run by two of the mods, inspired by the yellow Gotham Writers' Workshop book, Writing Fiction. The book was not required to participate, but was a helpful supplement. The activities are all listed in order on this website, for your use and ease.
If you're new to WriYe this year and would like to know what you're getting yourself into, we have an About Page that outlines the basic rules and ideas behind WriYe. If that page doesn't satiate your desire to know about WriYe, feel free to Contact any one of the moderators with any questions you may have, or start making yourself at home on this year's 2012 Forums.
Thanks for checking us out and we look forward to writing with you in 2012 and beyond!
