Broken Pencil's Second Annual Indie Writers' Deathmatch

The Indie Writers' Deathmatch is on! Broken Pencil's annual writing contest is underway, and it's up to readers to pick the winner. Read the stories in Round 1 by Sherwin Tjia and Natalie Pendergast and place your votes at

Each week during the Deathmatch, "two stories will be pitted against each other in the online arena, where anyone and everyone can read them and vote on which one deserves to reign supreme. The authors will be in constant communication with their audience through a blog which they can use to hype up their own story, or talk trash their opponent’s writing. The winning story moves on to the next round until there are only two stories left, battling it out for ultimate victory." The winner will receive $300 and have his or her story published in Broken Pencil.
