So, this doesn’t mean this building has to be the main focus of the story, but it needs to be mentioned somehow.

And here are the rules…

  • Word limit 1000-2000 words
  • No pornographic or hateful work.
  • 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!
  • Do NOT email your entry! We do not accept entries in the comments, either.
  • 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.)
