This is NOT a contest. There are no prizes. It’s a creative challenge. We’ll publish every submission that impresses us with its creativity. And we’ll do that as the submissions roll in. We’re not waiting until after the deadline to publish. When our deadline has come and gone, we’ll repeat the challenge with different words/phrases.
WHAT TO DO
- Read a story or poem at Typishly to see what we publish.
- We’ve provided three options below, each containing three words or phrases. Choose only ONE option. You must use all three of the exact words or phrases found within the option you choose. Use the three words or phrases in any order, somewhere within your short story or poem. It helps if you BOLD them, so readers can easily find them.
(What you do with the rest of your piece is totally up to you. Be inventive. Be unexpected. Surprise us with your creativity.)
