Your work will be judged by community comments on reddit. The last Writer vs. Writer challenge counted 88 participants and 53 submissions. Check it out:

Writer vs Writer is a battle between 4 randomly drawn participating writers. Each has the same amount of time to write the best short story (~750 words) on a randomly assigned prompt. It’s a quick fun challenge for you to enjoy as a break from your main projects. See some examples: Match Thread 2 Match Thread 1 … The winner of the battle is the person who receives the most votes. Voting is public, you need to leave a comment to a story for a point to be awarded and anyone may vote. The winner of a battle gets awarded 2 points, whilst points are shared equally in the event of a tie vote.
