Dandelion

A world where anything is possible … and everything is magical

Dandelion MICRO FICTION Contest

Welcome to Dandelion’s third Micro-Fiction contest!  Open to writers of all ages and inclinations!  This one’s inspired by Overbooked, see illustration below.  Where does a busload, no, a veritable magical mystery tour of overflowing books take you?   Such a magnificent volume of volumes to be considered, one small girl must have help!  Or must she?   Is there an adventure in the offing?  Ah, the places you’ll go….  We look forward to reading your micro-tales—contest guidelines are posted below and the deadline is September 30th. 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!).  Let the journey begin!

Please be sure to read our contest guidelines below. And sign up below to receive notices about each new contest!
