For 2016 we're borrowing some writing prompts from a great book, found at Writer's Digest Shop:A Year of Writing Prompts: 365 Story Ideas for Honing Your Craft and Eliminating Writer's Block by Brian A. Klems and Zachary Petit. We've posted a creative writing prompt each month which we hope will challenge your writing craft. Your task is to write up to 2,000 words about each prompt. Prizes will be awarded each month for the winning entry. We must have a minimum of three (3) contest entries each month in order to award a prize. There is no entry fee to submit to the monthly contests, and you may enter as frequently as you wish, and as early as you wish. Click the button below to submit in either an MSWord, ODT or RTF formats. Each winning entry will be featured on our website and the winning entries, as well as honorable mentions, will be published in one of our Legends anthologies .
Each month we will award a $25 Visa Gift Card! There is no entry fee. All judges decisions are final. Be sure to include the month/contest name as part of the title when you complete the submission form.
