Divide and Conquer Volume Two: A NaNoWriMo Alternative

Divide and Conquer Volume Two Cover ArtOur collective NaNoWriMo project from last year was a resounding success (we’ve given away over 500 copies*), so we’re going to try to better our record of 38,000 words this year with Volume Two. For those who don’t know Divide and Conquer is a Foil and Phaser Workshop where a group of writers try to complete NaNoWriMo challenge of writing a novel in the month of November. Each member of the group submits a short story (1500 – 10,000 words), and hopefully the total count will exceed the required fifty-thousand words.

The stories would be due by November 30th and would then be peer-edited by the group members in December and January. Once completed, all the stories will be published on this blog and compiled into a free ebook (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0).

If you are interested in participating, please reply using the form below before November 1st 30th. This workshop is open to speculative fiction from all ages and skill levels. By submitting this form you are agreeing to participate in this workshop and will attempt to conform to all deadlines barring exceptional circumstances. You also acknowledge that you have read and accept the terms and conditions of NaNoWriMo and Foil & Phaser. You should receive a confirmation email within 48 hours.

If you have specific questions, you may contact me by leaving a comment below (do not use the form for questions) or email me directly at foilandphaser@gmail.com
