Welcome to the Club

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
    where writer's-alike come together to share ideas and spread their knowledge and love of literature!

Authors-Club welcomes writers and non-writers alike. We aim to support you as you strive to achieve excellence.

You are invited and encouraged to join our cause: supporting and promoting the community's literary growth and knowledge. We welcome a variety of literature, from prose to poetry, fan fiction to fantasy, mystery to romance.

Everyone is allowed to join; whether you write or read! There are no limitations and membership requests are automatically accepted! Plus, we'll give you a llama badge.

Authors-Club proudly presents:

Cicadas, Coconuts, & Commitments III

It's that time of year when we bask in the warm summer sun, sip dainty drinks, and do the things we've waited months to do. I can almost smell summer! Can you hear the cicadas chirp? Lather yourself up with coconut butter and get your shades because you are about to join the Ho`olaule`a!


Aloha! This is only the third contest ever hosted by this club. Consequently, this event will be the biggest we have had to date. Prepare to bring this contest to the next level.

:bulletred: If you are interested in donating features, points, critiques or anything to this contest, please comment below or note the club, Authors-Club or amour-raven.

"No Keia La, No Keia Po, A Mau Loa"
(From this day, from this night, forever more)

What are we asking you to do?

Select one of the six images below to use as your muse. After plenty of imagining, utilizing the image for inspiration: sights, sounds, smells, touches, tastes we challenge you to create a poem or short story based off of that one photograph.

Seems to be quite a few pieces are in need of review for approval/rejection (for whatever reason, such as being put in the wrong folder), my own included.  If you deem me useful, I would humbly throw my name into the hat if you are looking for more submission reviewers.  If not, certainly understandable, and hopefully the issue will be resolved whenever conviniently possible.
