Dandelion MICRO FICTION Contest
Just in time to start anticipating the winter holidays, Dandelion announces our last Micro-Fiction contest of 2017. But keep your pens handy, we’ll announce the first contest of 2018 early next year!
Now, cast your imaginative wordsmith’s attention toward Winter’s Child, a scene of mysterious light and shadow and a crimson-coated child’s exchange with a rather large woodland creature. Email your own tall tale of this scene in 1,000 words or less, by midnight December 8, 2017. The winner’s story will be published on our website blog and on our FaceBook site! He or she 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!).
Please be sure to read and follow our contest guidelines below. And sign up to receive notices about each new contest!
Open to all ages, to writers published and unpublished! Every other month, Dandelion Press will post a new image with the question, “What’s the story of this painting?” The winner’s story will be featured on our website blog and FaceBook page.* The winner 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!).
Send all submissions and queries to info@DandelionPress.com by the deadline noted. Please, no phone inquiries or hard copy submissions.
