“The notes were comprehensive, thorough, and encouraging. I was able to take away key points, and utilise them in some of my more major projects, plus follow up with some further research so I could edit my writing to pieces! I certainly felt the feedback was worth it, and will probably continue to go back to it for some writing tonic whenever I’m on the verge of giving my initial draft to the waste basket!” – Gabriel (July 2023 Not Quite Write Prize feedback recipient)

“It was great. Very helpful. Hints that have helped me with constructing my flash fiction. The podcast was also so comprehensive and helpful. Something we contestants very rarely get.” – Jeff (July 2023 Not Quite Write Prize feedback recipient)
“The personalized feedback from the Not Quite Write flash fiction contest was thorough, insightful and gave me a strong direction of the pain points and successes within my piece! I’ve since used the feedback to update my story and transform it into something new.” – Deanna (July 2023 Not Quite Write Prize feedback recipient)
“Amanda provided constructive feedback which highlighted the areas of improvement as well as the areas of strength. For such a short story, the feedback was generous and provided me with my improvement focus areas. It gave me the confidence to continue my writing journey.” – Niki (July 2023 Not Quite Write Prize feedback recipient)

About the Participant Forum

At Not Quite Write, we highly value collaboration and feedback. That’s why we’ve created the Not Quite Write Participant Forum – a safe space to share work, give and receive feedback, and chat with other authors away from the watchful eye of the competition judges.

In addition to entry to the competition itself, this ticket entitles you to free access to this exclusive creative space.

The Participant Forum is now open. Your access to the forum will continue after the competition ends so you’ll be able to compare notes and bask in the glory of your achievements.
