About us


A bracketed style tournament designed to push burgeoning writers to their limits. During each round, two writers approach the stage. 3 words are chosen at the random. The writers then have 5 minutes to write anything, as long as the 3 designated words are utilized. During the round, the audience is encouraged to be as loud and raucous as possible to increase the challenge for the competitors, and enhance the fun for themselves. Dancing! Yelling! Throwing of things! At the end of 5 minutes, each writer in turn will read their work aloud to the audience. The audience, decides the winner. The winner advances, and the loser leaves. The winner of the tournament is then crowned the FBW Champion…by you. You dictate the journey. You choose a winner.. You decide how the story ends.

5 minutes. 3 words. 1 champion.
We are The Federation Of Belligerent Writers
