Atop the writer’s desk await the tools of the craft. Four days and the deadline looms. Four elements must integrate the pieces into five hundred words. The pieces begin to fall into place. The competing riders will not relent and every word counts.
The Iron Writer is a web-based flash fiction competition. It is about crafting short, element based stories in a competitive environment; winner take all.
It was conceived out of the desire to help writers of all skill levels improve the writing through fast, fun skirmishes with other writers using elements common to each story. From around the world, writers have gathered and competed. Some are veterans of the craft; some are new to the game. Yet all of them were willing to do battle to discover if they were worthy of carrying the title of Iron Writer.
Contained here are the winning stories by the current champions of…The Iron Writer Challenge.
