Gotham’s “A Very Short Story” Contest – Free Entry

Gotham Writer’s Workshop is an institution in New York City offering writing seminars on different topics like short story writing, novel writing, etc.

This year they are holding A Very Short Story Contest, with no entry fee. The deadline to enter is April 23rd.

The winner of the contest will get a free 10 week Gotham class, which is pretty sweet. (They offer in person classes and online, so don’t worry if you don’t live in the NYC metro area.)

The guidelines are simple: write a 10 word story, and those 10 words includes the title if you have one.

Enjoy and good luck!
