It Showed Up At My Doorstep.
Writers! Ever had strange things show up at your doorstep without knowing why? Here’s your chance to be published in our 2013 Fall Writing Contest, with a special-delivery twist: We’ll send you an object in the mail, and you’ll craft a 400-word short story based on what’s waiting at your front door courtesy of the good ol’ postal service.
To enter, send your name, street address and phone number to [email protected]. You have until Sept. 20 to enter, and after receiving your object in the mail, you have until Oct. 10 to submit your story to our judging panel.
Winners will be published in the Oct. 16 issue. All objects sent in the mail will be unique and one-of-a-kind. If you sign up and receive an object in the mail but do not submit a story about it, we will print your name in a “Hall of Shame” as a freeloader. Play nice!
