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.) 

WHAT TO DO

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.

Don’t submit short fiction over 5,000 words long. 

Don't submit poems with words scattered artistically all over the page.
