Chris’s Story 

by Views: 1029

I found Mash Stories by perusing the web for short-fiction writing contests. It caught my eye for several reasons: the wonderful aesthetic of the site, the excellent writing, and the Podcasts. Beyond that, I got the feeling that Mash is a real community and that feeling was confirmed by the warm messages I received from the team when I started.

Mash loves enthusiasm, ambition and optimism, which I believe is a big part of the reason why they brought me on board as a judge as well as Mash Club Coordinator.

Since I became a judge, I’ve been humbled and amazed by the outstanding level of skill and creativity that our Mashers possess. I love visualizing the stories and imagining the personality of the writer based on their voices. Often, I am sad to see the stories end.

As Mash Club Coordinator, I am beyond excited to interact with Mashers and to help them in any way possible. And I’d like to tell you how you could use Mash to improve your craft, which I think is important for any writer. If you’re a member of the Mash Club, you can make use of the feedback option. It’s important to do so because:

Objective, professional feedback is very, very hard to come by and it would be a tragic waste to not learn from it.

In the end, we are all here for a place to read excellent fiction and to better our craft. Luckily for us, that is exactly what Mash Stories is all about.

Finally, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or anyone else on the Mash team. We would all be glad to help!
