Every month, the editors of WD head to a conference room and break out a hulking box. In it, we find thieves, murderers, brothers, lovers, leprechauns and everything in between—the usual (and often incredibly unusual) suspects. From among the cast of stories, five are selected to be posted on our forum for voting and a shot at the lone fiction spot in WD: the Your Story competition.
Wanna give it a go?
In 750 words or fewer, funny, sad or stirring, send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post it in the Comments section below and I’ll enter it in the competition. By posting below, you’ll also be automatically entered in our occasional around-the-office swag drawings. (If you’re having trouble with the captcha code sticking, feel free to e-mail your story to me at email@example.com, with “Promptly” in the subject line, and I’ll make sure it gets up.)
The latest prompt, from our March/April issue, follows. Good luck!
