350 for 50

Polish up those pens!

We challenge you to write a short, 350-word story that includes a sentence of our choosing. Winning stories will be illustrated and published on our creative blog, and the authors will receive a whirlwind $50 shopping spree. The annual contest is announced on our Community Events page and through our e-notification list.

We encourage you to read and enjoy the stories written by our 2024 winners!
