New Micro Fiction Contest


Our third MicroFiction contest of 2019 features the misty forest, a solo violinist and a most keen Great Bear. Questions abound! Curiosity is your guide!  Tune your creative strings to the whispering within where the Rhapsody of life is always playing. Our contest begins July 12th at the height of Summer and ends August 30th as Fall peeks just around the calendar page.  

Whether you sharpen your pencil, fill your fountain pen, oil the typewriter or fire up the keyboard, email us your tale—up to 1,000 words—by midnight, August 30, 2019.  Send to

The winner’s story will be published on our website blog and on our FaceBook site!  She or he 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, but it’s in the works!).
