The Pulse’s Annual Short Story Contest Is Back
Do you love to write but have the attention span of a fruit fly? Do you get hyped about NaNoWriMo every year just to tap out after page one? Then have we got the writing contest just for you!
Hunker down and get to typing because The Pulse is hosting our annual short story contest once again. Your inability to finish a novel will be rewarded by our lack of desire to read one. Come up with a legendary tale and tell it to us straight, in 500 words or less.
The rules are simple: Power up Microsoft Word, wow us in as few words as possible and send it on over to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Short Story Contest.” Just remember that everyone has access to the paper, including your grandmother, so keep it clean. You only get one shot so make it count—and don’t forget the title.
Send us your masterpiece by Friday, July 10 to be entered into the race for best short story crafter in the universe (or at least in Chattanooga). Our panel of expert judges are waiting and eager to read. Don’t forget to include your name and contact info so we can let you know if you’re a winner. Cool prizes will be forthcoming.
Finalists will be immortalized in the July 23 issue of The Pulse.
