Lyttle Lytton


The other day I mentioned the Bulwer-Lytton contest for bad writing. I also mentioned that I disagreed with the judgement of its judges. I have since been informed by a kindly commenter that there is a much better prize: the Lyttle Lytton.

Each winner comes with a cogent explanation from Adam Cadre (I believe) of exactly what is so horribly wrong. There is also a limit of 25 words, which means they march snappily by. I thoroughly recommend it. The 2010 winners can be found by clicking on this link.
