Submissions are closed for this prompt. The winning story will be posted tomorrow evening (14 March 2010).
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 the body of an email to email@example.com with “submission” in the subject line. Please include a title for your story and a biographical link (blog/Twitter/website). For more details, please see our submission guidelines.
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 email you on Saturday so that you may share the fun with your friends and fans.
Please read our archive if you are unfamiliar with the form. There are also helpful articles by meika loofs samorzewski on our form21 blog and Ben White on his day/night reversal blog.
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.
