Upload your own short-story or poetry manuscript PDF for a $6 entry fee by July 24, 2013. Then, vote within your genre to decide the three prize-winning manuscripts of $1000, $200, and $100, and all the manuscripts published in each issue of Sixfold.
Sixfold is a collaborative, democratic, completely writer-voted journal. The writers who upload their manuscripts vote to select the prize-winning manuscripts and all the short stories and poetry published in each issue. All participating writers’ equally weighted votes choose what's published, instead of the usual decision-making of one judge or small group of editors. With an open and transparent process, all writers involved decide with fair, rule-based voting (i.e. you never vote for your own manuscript, or for the same manuscript twice). Everyone's vote finds the best writing and prints the short stories and poems everyone wants to read.
In addition to voting manuscripts into publication, you give and receive workshop feedback on your and your fellow writers’ work. By the end of three rounds of voting, you read, evaluate, vote, and write comments on 18 other writers’ manuscripts, and receive up to 6, 24, or 78 votes and comments on your own manuscript from other writers, depending on how far it progresses through the three voting rounds.
Join a community of writers engaged in a fair manuscript judging process. Read your fellow writer and the variety of short stories and poems out there. Read, vote, give comment, get comment, and so better your own writing. And connect! If you wish. Be anonymous during the entire voting process, or opt-in to connect and network with other writers after the secret-ballot voting rounds are over.
