Write us a story in response to this photo! These prompts are posted Tuesdays on our Twitter and Facebook accounts plus our editorial blog. Please be sure to use a word processor’s word count tool to check your character count. Submissions must be 140 characters or less (including spaces). You have until 9:00 p.m. Pacific on Saturday to submit your story. Submissions may be made in multiple ways, listed in order of our preference:
If your story is chosen as Pic of the Week, it will be posted on Sunday to our PicFic account on Twitter and to our archive blog. We will also message/email you on Saturday so that we may give you proper attribution.
The fine print:
Accepted manuscripts will be published first on Twitter, then combined in a collection that will be released as an e-book. If your manuscript is chosen as a “3 Cheers” winner, it will also be released as a YouTube video. By submitting your work, you are agreeing to grant us non-exclusive electronic rights to publish your manuscript in these three formats that may be archived indefinitely. We donate a portion of our Twitter-zine anthologies’ net proceeds to Doctors Without Borders.
