  • Please pay the entry fee of $2. You may submit a payment to Be sure to include your name and title of your story so we can match your entry with the fee!

  • You may submit more than one entry, but you must pay the $2 entry fee per story.
  • Do not send previously written/published works. (Yes, that includes self-published. The point of this is to elicit a fresh story from this particular prompt.)
