Some of you have been asking about the 2016 dates for the big contest. We love you so much for asking.
After much deliberation, the 36-hour Sledgehammer contest is postponed indefinitely. It takes a massive amount of work to put each of these contests on, and if the contest is going to continue, we’ll need a team dedicated to sponsor relations, publicity, admissions management, and day-of coordination. If you’d like to help put a team together to help run the 2017 contest, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, monthly Mini Sledgehammers will continue every second Tuesday at Blackbird Wine!
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
- a celebrity judge
- more than $1,000 in CASH prizes
Writers of all ages can participate individually or as teams and from anywhere in the world.
