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!

Good evening had by all

A good evening was had by all, with some grand entertainment courtesy of Lisa Culligan, Misha Herwin, Kenneth Kay, Lynn Smith,  Sherrie Lowe and Pauline Woodhouse.

Thank you so much to all of the many people turning out to hear our readers do their thing and also for buying their books.  6×6 is all about giving local authors the chance to set out their stall and last night was one of our most successful yet with three new books being offered up.

Thank you also to our comperes Misha Herwin and Jan Edwards, and of course to Emma George and all of the staff at City Central Library for their continued unstinting support.

The next 6×6 will be 12th June 2018 so mark it in your diaries now!

Submission window for writers will open on 1st April and close on 27th May. We shall look forward to seeing what new and exciting words are being offered to us then.
