The Naked Convos has opened for submissions for the fourth season of The Writer. The Writer Competition is an online ‘reality’ writing contest created by TheNakedConvos. Entries will be collected and the best announced to work with mentors to improve their writing craft. When the competition proper starts, writers will be given a theme to write flash stories on.
