After a slight intermission, we return to you with perhaps the greatest feature we have ever offered on our website in 10 solid years of content. Chuck Palahniuk reads and reviews your stories! Hopefully by now you know the drill, but just in case you don't, lemme recap you!
Starting in February of 2009, we began a screening process, whereby about 17 original stories from our Writers' Workshop get nominated and then read by judges every month. The top 6 stories are then sent off to Chuck Palahniuk who reads, reviews and feedbacks them. The selected finalists are then posted here, along with Chuck's in-depth notes. It is Chuck's aim at the end of the year to choose the best stories and publish them in an anthology which he will write the Intro for.
As we are on a three month turnaround, below you will find the 6 stories that Chuck reviewed for June 09. Premium Members can click each story to not only read it, but also see Chuck's feedback.
The Great-God Bird of Arkansas - Wil D. Alton
Invisible Graffiti - Adam Skorupskas
Bike - BH Ebert
Logan Outbreak - J. R. Strohmeyer
The Line Forms On the Right - Amanda Gowin
The Soldier - Phil Jourdan
A big congrats to all the finalists. Chuck seemed to really enjoy every story we sent in June.
