Default Members' Choice Nomination Thread - Mar 16th - June 15th


Next string of Members' Choice Nominations!

Only pieces with the original post date (not the date of the responses) between March 16th and June 15th will be eligible. Post your nominations, with a link to the piece, here in this thread. You may nominate as many as you like.

Voting will take place for one week, beginning on June 16th. The winning piece will have a chance to be published in Writer's Beat Quarterly, Issue 27 (subject to the editors-in-chief's approval).

Thank you!

what do we nominate for? Great work, atrocious work, witty one liners, what? And, perhaps most importantly of all... why? What does the winner get?

Here's your answer: What is Members' Choice?

Now, people, get your nominations in! We only have two thus far. Certainly there must be more work worth mentioning, no?

We're not limited to the amount we nominate, right?

Can I nom another one?

ScribblerKing's Mister Blue (a villanelle) (poetry)

Oh, crap... got to go get the link...


*sneaks back in* You ain't seen me right.

http://www.writersbeat.com/showthread.php?t=25177

Just give us a slap if we can't vote for more than one, or we have to choose one from each genre...

You can vote for whichever pieces strike your fancy. More than one is fine.

To expand on what Devon said, you can nominate any number, then when the voting thread goes up you can view all the nominated works and then vote for your favourites.
