Happy 13th Birthday YWS!


Hello all! It's YWS' Birthday Week (or Birthweek if you're so inclined)! For those who don't know, the Young Writers Society was created by Nate on November 14th, 2004. Yeah... thirteen years ago. It's crazy, isn't it? Even if you've only been here for a year, it's crazy to see how much the site has grown. Our community is amazing and we have had some of the best people join our family. I want to thank each and every one of you for being here with us. It doesn't matter if you've been here since the start or just joined yesterday - you are all so important and special and loved. You are family, and this is our home. YWS wouldn't be here without all of you, so thank you for being here. I can't imagine my life without YWS, and I hope you feel the same way. So much love for you all.

... okay okay, I'll stop with the sappy speech! I'm sure you're all dying to know what the events are going to be. Let's get started, then!

Every day, the host of an event will post a thread in The Lounge letting you all know when it's begun, so keep an eye out for that! Here's a rundown of what to expect:

Wednesday the 8th
- Official Contest begins, hosted by @LadyLizz
- Event #1: Wink Murder, hosted by @Holysocks

Thursday the 9th
- Event #2: Poetry Jam, hosted by @alliyah

Friday the 10th
- Event #3: Scavenger Hunt, hosted by @Iggy

Saturday the 11th
- Event #4: Monkeys vs Dragons, hosted by @Rydia and @Meshugenah

Sunday the 12th
- Event #5: Short Story Contest, hosted by @Steggy

Monday the 13th
-Event #6: Break the Chat, also known as BB's pre-birthday party, hosted by @Big Brother

Tuesday the 14th
- Happy Birthday YWS!
- Event #7: Big Brother's List of Birthday Demands, hosted by @Iggy
- Final day for contest entries

Be on the lookout for more information about each event as the days go on. Remember that everyone who participates in at least one event will get a badge made by @Lumi, as usual! Feel free to reply with any questions, comments, or concerns. :)

I'm so excited and I hope you all are, too!

All the events look awesome! :D
We're all stories in the end.

I think of you as a fairy with a green dress and a flower crown and stuff.

Get ready for the teen years, y'all!

Is anyone else slightly scared? XP
I hope it's a good joke because otherwise I'll have got it for nothing...

All are invited to attend the Poetry Birthday Jam in honor of YWS's 13th birthday.

The Poetry Jam will begin at . No need to RSVP, but be sure to bring your party hats. Hope to see you there!

I'll be posting a link to the jam on my wall and on this thread before the event begins. :)

Hopefully, YWS doesn't go through a phase. I don't want to start seeing emo pieces inside the green room (which also hopefully won't turn into the black room)
