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. When our deadline has come and gone, we’ll repeat the challenge with new writing prompts. (Don’t submit short fiction over 5,000 words long. Don't submit poems with words scattered artistically all over the page.)
