Writer's Brick Contest

Have you ever wanted to write a story but didn't know where to start? Writer's brick gives you a piece of a short story and rewards you for participation in completing the the story.

What is Writer's Brick?
Each month you can build on a writing prompt published by Fun with Jay and Harm.  The writing prompt may include a small piece of the story, describe key characters, or list other criteria that your story must include.  The best way to be notified when a new competition opens is to follow us on social media.  We are most active on YouTubeFacebook, and Twitter.  Your fully assembled story must be received before the deadline to be considered in the competition.
