The Current Mini-Contest
Mini-Contest #37 launched on Sunday, April 15, 2018.
OTP’s chief editor and co-publisher is in the middle of a sustained burst of business travel. Therefore, for mini-contest #37, your goal is to tell, show, or evoke a complete story in no more than 50 words in which travel plays an important role.
Deadline: 11:59 PM Eastern US time, Friday, May 4, 2018.
Length: Maximum of 50 words.
Hyphenated Words: If the hyphenated word is generally considered a single word, it counts as one word. (Example: “twenty-five” or “jack-o-lantern.”) Otherwise each word that is hyphenated word counts separately. (Example: “It was a don’t-get-in-my-way day.”)
Prizes: $25 for first place, $15 for second, $10 for third. Honorable mentions get published but make no money.
One entry per author. There is no fee for entering this contest.
