Dandelion MICRO FICTION Contest
Dear Creative MicroFiction Writers,
Welcome to Dandelion’s second contest of 2018. Our Springtime inspiration for you is the image called “Kathryn’s Drift.” Rafting out upon mysterious waters, where will this scene take you and where have you been? This is your creative opportunity to illustrate in words what you see here!
Email your story of 1,000 words or less, by midnight June 1, 2018. The winner’s story will be published on our website blog and on our FaceBook site! He or she will also receive a bouquet of Dandelion products and be placed on the short-list of possible authors for Dandelion’s next book publication (no date set!).
Please read and re-read our Contest Guidelines below to ensure your best chances of winning our latest literary challenge. And sign up using the form below to receive notices about each new contest.
Now, set your imaginations and pens adrift, and we look forward to reading your stories!
Open to all ages, to writers published and unpublished. Every few months, Dandelion Press will post a new image with the question, “What is the story of this painting?” Your literary challenge is to illustrate that art in words, staying true to the feelings, values, and imagery you see there! Don’t let your creative thread be cut short by too many details, but allow the nuances of subtle feelings to guide your pen! The winner’s story will be featured on our website blog and FaceBook page.* The winner will also receive a bouquet of Dandelion products and be placed on the short-list of possible authors for Dandelion’s next book publication (no date set!).
Send all submissions and queries to info@DandelionPress.com by the deadline noted. Please, no phone inquiries or hard copy submissions.
Maximum word count: 1000. Please tell us your final word count!
