The WritersWeekly Fall, 2016 24-Hour Short Story Contest is THIS WEEKEND!

The fall contest always has a crispy, cool theme and it’s our favorite each year!

In case you’re not familiar with our quarterly contest, this is how it works. On the date of the contest, at start-time, we send out the topic for that specific contest to all registered entrants, while also posting it on

Entrants must be registered before the contest begins and there is a limit of 500 participants per contest. Entrants then have 24 hours to write and submit their stories via email. The stories “must deal with the topic in some way to qualify” and they must not exceed the pre-assigned word count, which is announced with the topic.

We hope you can join the fun a week from Saturday! It’s a hoot!!!
