The WriXAs are a tri-annual awards ceremony, an idea originally put forward by am32, that has been established to give out awards, based on the member's of Writer's Express' votes. The awards ceremony are intended to be a bit of friendly competition, intending to award those who the other members feel are a worthy winner in categories such as Best Fan-Fic and Best Drama, and so on within three specific categories of 'Crossover' (those awards that encompass neither drama or soaps; or both), 'Drama' and 'Soaps' all manned by different members. The awards ceremony began in Winter 2011, and are currently still an active and major part of the Writer's Express Forums, with the most recent ceremony on May 12, 2013.
