I wanted to take the time to let you know that if you are competing in the FREE summer writing contest, your submissions are due July 9! That’s next Monday!
Word limit – 1500 words or less.
Entry fee – Absolutely nothing. It’s FREE!
Prize – 1st place: $20 and featured on kwriley.com
2nd place: $10 and featured on kwriley.com
Everyone who enters will recieve feedback on their stories.
Submissions due: July 9, 2018
How it will work:
You write a story within the wordcount (not a word more) in response to the prompt and link this post either at the beginning or ending of your short story. You will also need to add a short bio of yourself so that our readers can get to know you better. You can include any social media or contact information in your bio (I will simply copy and paste your submition). Easy peasy lemon squeezy. *If you are having trouble linking this post, just send me a message or comment down below and I will help you ASAP.
*By participating in this contest, you agree to allow me to feature you/your work on my site. I will also add a link to the story on your site along with a short bio of you. While I will feature you on my site, you will retain all rights to the story and can publish it where ever, whenever you like.
With all that being said, I want to remind you all that while this is a competition, it doesn’t mean you’re a failure if you don’t win. My goal in creating this competition is to allow you a chance to stretch those story-telling muscles and write something new, as well as give myself a chance to work on providing feedback. Since this is completely free for you, you have absolutely nothing to lose!
Without further ado, here is the prompt for the writing contest:
So, interpret that however you may. It can be literal or figurative. Be creative and write to your heart’s content! I am excitedly looking forward to reading all of your submissions.

** If you’d like to be super creative and create an image or bookcover-type thing, canva.com is amazing and ranges from free to cheap. I used this site to create my featured image on this post. If you decide to do this, you can include it in your submission. This will not affect your chances of winning in any way and is totally optional.
