Tips For 6×6 Writers

Posted on

Once again we heard a superb selection of fiction at our last event. The bar is raising by the season and selecting just six submissions from the many received is getting tougher every time.

We are often asked what the criteria is for being selected for 6×6 and whilst it may seem blindingly obvious, the best advice we can offer is the usual mantra for submitting material to any market or event: ‘read the guidelines.’

Our Guidelines to be found HERE

The single biggest reason for being overlooked – after quality of writing, obviously – is in that crucial time slot.  6×6 means just what it says – Six minute slots for six writers. So practise reading aloud at a good steady pace and time it for yourself before submitting it.

The next 6×6 is in 12th June. The submission window  for that opens in 1st April and ends 25th May, so get writing!
