Dandelion

A world where anything is possible … and everything is magical

Dandelion MICRO FICTION Contest

Dear Creative MicroFiction Writers,  

Welcome to Dandelion’s third contest of 2018.  Our Sumertime inspiration for you is the image called “Charmed.”  There is magic afoot in the fleeting summer months!  How does it speak to you now?  Let your imaginations hop, plop, swim and dive, and send us your best micro-fiction story ever!  

This is your invitation to practice being the creative writer you know you are.  Email your story of 1,000 words or less, by midnight August 24, 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.

Contest Guidelines

Open to all ages, to writers published and unpublished.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!).
