Dandelion

A world where anything is possible … and everything is magical

Dandelion MICRO FICTION Contest

Writers of Magic and Whimsy, the Dandelion 2018 Micro-Fiction Contest is about to begin!  

This year we will offer you four opportunities to turn your imagination loose and tell us your story of the season’s illustration.   As we shared in December, your stories have energized and inspired us in so many unexpected ways!  Thank you for sharing your courageous, creative hearts and talent with us and with all our readers and followers.   Now, let the magic begin!   

Our Winter illustration is called “Just a Dream.”  At the intersection of dreaming and waking, our beds call us to another world.  May your pens and pencils take you there now!

Email your story of 1,000 words or less, by midnight March 15, 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 be sure to read our contest guidelines. And sign up here to receive notices about each new contest!  

Happy Dreaming!
