Verbolatry Laugh-a-Riot Contest 2016

Send us your funnies about writing and win cash prizes! They say a contest is only as good as its judges. By that account, we rock! For our debut year, we’ve managed to bag ourselves three terrific titans of the writing industry.

We think the adventures of the charming Debora and her incorrigible Pen deserve to be told to the teeming masses of the writing/publishing industry. Everyone can do with a good laugh. We hope this contest raises the profile of Verbolatry newsletter and gets us more subscribers. And with our anniversary coming up, what better way to celebrate than by asking you to join in?!

Humour writing is our thing. Humour about writing even more so. We’ve found that this niche is sadly under-represented and under-appreciated in the current literary scene out there, so we’d like this contest to fill that void. We hope entrants will feel empowered and encouraged to keep on writing.
If you’re associated in any way with this industry, we bet you have a funny story to share!
