HOW IT WORKS
▽Per the wrestling literary tradition, on the day of the event—in a the ring in front of screaming fans—each competitor will be given three words that must be incorporated in a narrative written in 10 minutes. They will have a chair, a desk and their writing will be projected for all attendees to see.
▽Three judges will deliberate and choose a winner.
▽Winner’s chapbook will be published by Foglifter in the Summer 2018.
