Announcing Contest One: “Spark”

See the contest page for full details or to learn how to enter!

ContestOne

Guidelines

Your writing prompt for this contest is the single word spark. Contest One awards prizes for poetry and prose.

Prose includes both fiction and creative nonfiction, but we have not divided the category further because we believe that well-written creative nonfiction should tell a story so well that the result is indistinguishable from fiction.

Poetry includes all styles, meters, and rhyme schemes, or may be free-form.
