The Writeoffs are writing challenges held every three weeks — alternating between My Little Pony fanfiction and original fiction — in which writers create stories inspired by a collaboratively chosen prompt. The stories are submitted to the writeoff.me website, which posts them anonymously. Preliminary and final judging rounds allow readers to choose winners based solely on the quality of the stories, without knowing any of the authors' identities. Voting is open to the public.
During the judging period, the event thread on the Writeoff website becomes a centralized discussion point for the stories, with a strong tradition of participants trading story reviews and constructive criticism. Many participants feel that this feedback is the best part of the Writeoffs. The event is concluded when voting results are posted and the authors revealed.
Although the Writeoffs are hosted offsite, their community is drawn from a strong core of FIMFiction authors and many of its stories end up here. We welcome all authors and readers, whether new or experienced — so come one, come all to the Writeoff Association!
