The odds of getting into Twisted vol 2 are around 3 to 1… Singularity50 anyone?

Just over 150 writers submitted to Twisted Vol 2 which means the odds of getting in the book are VERY good.

Some writers submitted many more than one story increasing their chances – and then  there is the potential for spin off books like Evil Little Sister.

The bottom line is that entering Twisted50 volume 2 was a very smart move for writers who want to get published.

Why am I  sharing this now as Twisted50 is closed?

We have decided to extend the ‘Twisted50 Volume 2' Deadline

We have shifted the Twisted50 Volume 2 deadline to coincide more closely with the Twisted50 volume 1 Awards that will happen mid February next year. This will ensure we get a flurry of activity around the deadline and help platform the new book initiative.

If you have not written a story for Twisted50 vol 2, you will now have until the end of February to do so, but submit early so that you get the benefit of the feedback.

Once these are all signed and delivered, we can begin the next phase of the process where the team, publishers and editors submit notes and guidance for final rewrites. And you are invited to have your say too.

5 Quick Ways To Elevate Your Prose To The Next Level by Lucy V aka @Bang2write

We hear a lot about "good writing" but what does this MEAN? Well, any number of things, obviously - we all want a good story, well told. That means non-negotiables such as great concepts, super structure and not to mention, diverse characterisation. (For starters!) But okay, let's say you've got all of the above. CONGRATS! Now let's start looking at WHAT is on the page - your actual prose. This might mean your prose in terms of your short story, as in your Twisted50 entry (or perhaps your novel?). In short, we're "elevating our prose" ... which might sound fancy-schmancy, but basically means we're making our words BETTER as in: more colourful, more interesting and (crucially) EASIER TO READ.
