Challenges are hosted at redherring, storyboard and dustjackets. Each community hosts a different kind of challenge. Redherring has games, storyboard has writing and dustjackets has graphics.

This is the game community. These can be anything from luck games, word games, jigsaws and trivia.

Each game requires you to post your answer in the comments, which are always screened so that other members cannot see your answers.

You may need to have an image editing software such as Photoshop. This is so you can cross out words and submit your answers. You can also print things out and scan them before submitting your finished image.

I can't do this challenge...
I'm sorry. Unfortuately, there will always be challenges that some people feel they can't enter. It's impossible to please everyone, which is why we have a variety of challenges.
