In times like these, good fiction can be a salve, a consolation, or a catalyst for change. Writing, too, can be a source of solace or transformation: with it, we take the raw materials of life and wring them for meaning, allowing us to navigate the possibilities, and the perils, of the present.
There is no theme for this year’s competition. We are accepting only short stories, and the piece must be no longer than 2000 words.
ENTRIES DUE BY SEPTEMBER 30
