Happy Saturday before Stitched Saturday!
As promised, here are more details regarding the return of Stitched Saturday from the Unsaintly Queen herself.
Stitched Saturday has been through the ups and downs readers and fans have thrown at us. The truth is people love it. The harder truth is people always like to be negative and find ways to bring others down. It’s OK because we love the challenge and rise to meet it every time.
This time will be no different.
For Stitched Saturday’s evolution, please read carefully:
Every Saturday starting in August 2022, there will be a writing prompt. The prompt will have specific rules. One week it might be using two words provided, another might be to write from a 1st person point of view. The point is that you will never know until the prompt goes out.
At the end of the month, a winner will be chosen. How is that winner decided?
- They have the most likes.
- IF there is a tie, the members of the newsletter will be prompted to vote.
At the end of each quarter, the winners will be featured in House of Stitched Magazine. You will get one ad for promoting your other work(s). If you do not have anything to promote (book, art, etc.), we’ll ask to print your short story and do a short write up with Q&A style interview.
Ezekiel Kincaid will be your moderator and has final say on all required elements. If you do not meet the requirements, your story is automatically eliminated, regardless of how many votes it receives.
- Rally support
- Have FUN
- Talk poorly of other people’s work
- Ask for any negative behavior, or trolling on the House of Stitched site(s), social media, etc.
- Argue, fight, or try to win on loopholes. You won’t win. Period.
