Deadline

Categories

Entry Fees

Free to enter.

Prizes

A free Gotham class of the winner's choosing.

Description

We invite you to look back at 2017 and write about it.

Specifically, we want you to tell us a true story from your life in 2017…in only 17 words.

We want a personal story from your life, which can be hilarious, heartbreaking, puzzling, uplifting, or just plain strange. Look for something intriguing, perhaps something with emotional or intellectual resonance. It’s fine if you want to include current events from the year, as long as it’s mostly about you, or how you feel about it.

Whoever writes the 17-word memoir that most captivates us will win a free Gotham class of his or her choosing.
