Writing a 250-word story is much harder than it sounds.
It’s pretty tough to include all the elements of good storytelling into such a short piece, but if you’re up for the challenge you should enter the Writers’ Union of Canada’s Postcard Story Competition.
It will cost you $5 and some postage to enter this contest. You have until February 14th, 2011 to submit your story. Be sure and read all the submission requirements before sending yours in. And if the pride and joy of winning isn’t enough for you, the winner also gets $500.
I enter this contest every year and while I have yet to win, I always have a lot of fun trying.
