Sledgehammer 2014, Here We Come!
This year’s contest will take place Saturday, July 26 and Sunday, July 27. Save the dates!
What’s Sledgehammer, you ask? It’s a quirky writing contest that incorporates a scavenger hunt, four writing prompts, a 36-hour deadline, the option to write as a team or solo, celebrity judge Ariel Gore, and prizes worth thousands.
It all started in 2008 with a little idea to bring writers together in Portland, Oregon. Since then, the contest has expanded with sponsors from all over and the option for writers anywhere to participate through the magic of the internet.
Preregistration will open in June. Cost: $40 for adults ($50 day of), $10 for ages 11–17, and $5 for ages 10 and under.
