SlingInk was a writing forum that finally closed its doors in 2011. It was a very friendly place, with its own personality but considerable overlap of members with other forums such as The Write Idea.
Eurofiction was an annual contest which took place over twenty weeks in which the contestants were given a series of writing challenge, each to be completed within two weeks. The scores were awarded (by an anonymous judge) in a similar manner to the Eurovision song contest, with - in 2007 at least - 20 points to the winner, then 19 points each to second and third place, 18 to fourth and fifth and so on down to the dreaded nul points at the bottom of the table. A rolling total was kept and the winner announced at the end.
SlingInk Short Shorts was an annual open competition for stories of 100 words or under.
