New Micro Fiction Contest

Infinite Grace

Welcome to Dandelion Press’ Spring 2019 MicroFiction Contest! To our faithful writers and to those new to our contest, we thank you for your participation in this mutually creative endeavor. Imagining the stories that might best illustrate Lori’s original paintings, you add new dimensions to how we see them. And so we challenge you with this Spring’s selected art—Infinite Grace—What in the wide world of wildness is the story waiting to be revealed here?!

Whether you sharpen your pencil, fill your fountain pen, oil the typewriter or plug in the keyboard, let your imagination guide your fingers into this improbable, momentous scene. Email us your tale—up to 1,000 words—by midnight, May 30, 2019. Send to

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 to ensure your best chances of winning our latest literary challenge. Sign up here to receive contest news, and find previous contest winners here!

Happy Spring Dreaming!
