2020 Fall Writing Contest

SWG Fall Writing Contest

Prizes of $75-first, $50-second, $25-third and honorable mention 

Writing from a picture prompt: Look for the obvious – and then look for clues for a story. Some questions to ask  –
1. Who is he? Why is he alone? What’s his thoughts? Why isn’t he with the group across the lake?
2. What lurks in the forest? Or in the lake? What is beyond the mountains?
3. Is he waiting for someone? Or running away? Hiding in plain sight?

Your story may be creative nonfiction (i.e., a semi-true story) or fiction, or an essay (true life story).

Contest rules:

  • 750 words or less or a one-page poem
  • Any genre
  • Deadline: October 31 at midnight
