The authorial sands of The Writer’s Arena are thirsty for blood and ink! This true debut of the arena comes in all shapes and sizes, all relative times and places. A Sense of Scale is the name of the game, and our gladiators have brought weapons both great and small.
Today we bring you a bout between a pair of east coast titans. Representing The Writer’s Arena and a member of the Human Echoes crew is Joseph Devon. Fighting out of New York City by way of New Jersey, Joseph brings the literary heat with a story called Expanding Scope.
In the challenger’s corner, a West Virginian stands tall. A cerebral fighter, Caleb Newell can calculate just how hard he’s going to bring the typewriter down on his opponent. Weighing in at a meaty 1800 words, Caleb presents his story Creatures Great and Small.
It’s a near microscopic battle with universal implications here folks, and we need your help to decide a winner. We ask that you please put your thoughts in the comment section below. We’re looking for thoughtful criticism, and anything mean or crude will be deleted.
Authors aren’t allowed to comment on their own stories, but we’re sure they’ll be checking in here. We have two judges that will render their decision by Friday. The third vote comes from you, the readers. We ask that you read both stories objectively, and then leave a comment below. We’ll tally up the totals and announce our champion on Friday the 23rd.
On a side note, we are paying our authors a base level rate at the moment, but if you really enjoyed their story and want to help us make sure these awesome people get paid, please donate below. 75% goes to the author, the rest goes to keeping this place up and running.
