    Mibba's 2019 Writing Cup


    Mibba's Writing Cup is a writing challenge with a twist. Aimed at getting site members writing and interacting with one another as much as possible, this month-long challenge involves both writing as much as you can and working together as a team. Members are placed into teams with other Mibbians and are set a simple task: get the highest combined word count possible.

    For every 1,000 words you write throughout February, you'll earn points for your team. You also have the choice of completing the Challenge Board - a board filled with mini-challenges and writing tasks to complete throughout the course of the month. Each task is also worth a series of points and there's a prize up for grabs for every competitor that completes the Challenge Board.

    At the end of the month, points are tallied together to create both group and individual totals. The team members that comes out on top are crowned Writing Cup Champions and win both the grand prize and bragging rights for the coming year!

    How Does It Work?


    Sign-up for the Writing Cup is open until January 30. To join, simply fill in the form in the 'Sign Up' section below. Once the forms have been collated and sign-up is closed, you'll be assigned to a group that best matches the information you've given us.

    You'll be sent a link to your group's base thread on January 31. This thread is used both to keep track of your word count and goals, and also to chat to the other members of your group. Each group will have a staff leader, who will be there to keep the main page of the thread updated with any and all important information, as well as ensuring your word count goals are up-to-date. They will be your cheerleader, and will try and keep you motivated throughout the course of the month.

    Rules / Guidelines
    • Any rating, genre, fandom or story type is allowed.
    • All stories submitted must follow Mibba's Story Guidelines. Failure to do so will result in the story in question being discounted from your total word count.
    • Only words written between February 1, 2019 and February 28, 2019 will count towards your total word count.
    • Group / co-writes and re-writes of existing chapters will not be counted towards your total word count.
    • Be respectful / mindful when engaging in discussions with other group members.
