The Current Contest

Short Story Contest #35 launched on Sunday, December 15, 2019.

MORE THAN ONE

For this contest, write a creative, compelling, well-crafted story between 1,000 and 5,000 words in which one or more characters face this problem: there is more than one of something that there should absolutely, positively be only one of.

GENRE RULES: No children’s fiction, no exploitative sex, no over-the-top grossout horror, and no stories that are obvious parodies of existing fictional worlds/characters created by other authors.

Deadline: 11:59 PM Eastern US time, FRIDAY, March 6, 2020.

One entry per author. There is no fee for entering this contest.
