In order to celebrate Writers & Books’ 35th anniversary, we are launching a very short story contest where the only rule is that you must use exactly 35 words! It’s that simple. Test your creative wits and see what potential lies in only 35 words. Submit one story or submit ten, write in prose or write poetry, whatever you choose–the only rule is that you have to use 35 words!
There are two really easy ways to submit your stories–electronically or in person. To submit electronically, simply email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name in the email, and that’s it! To submit in person, we have a submission box located inside Writers & Books and postcards with information about the contest to write your story on. Feel free to stop by and take a few, working on them as you choose, as long as you submit them before the deadline!
The deadline for submissions is May 6th, 2016. There will be a reading June 6th where anyone and everyone who submitted should come and read their 35 word masterpieces, and listen to others. We will officially announce the winners then!
Prizes will include being published in our catalog and a choice of some limited edition W&B 35th anniversary swag, including tote bags and pins!
Any questions can be emailed to email@example.com, or call Sarah Brown at 473-2590 ext. 110
