Submission game

Let’s play Sink or Submit

Sink or Submit is a writing group game to take some of the pain out of being rejected. Every time you submit a piece of writing to a publisher/agent/journal etc you get a point. Every time you get rejected you also get a point.

But… if you get accepted, you go back to the bottom of the leader board.

Can you be the first Dragon Writer to get a triple digit score?

How it works

  • When you submit a query, give yourself a S+
  • When you get rejected, give yourself a R+
  • When you get something accepted, you have to give yourself a A+ (which will wipe your score)
  • When you withdraw a submission, give yourself a W+. This does not impact the score (is for your own records).
