What a wonderful group of stories!  The exceptional quality of the writing made our job very pleasant but also hard to select a winner. There seemed to be a common theme of writers and writing in your responses to “Inspiration”, so we selected a story that we believe personifies the role of the artist since prehistoric times! Congratulations to everyone who is making the Voice club such a lively center of creativity.  

Thanks to all of you for another highly successful contest!

2021-Flash-02 - "Inspiration"

As writers, we are always looking for inspiration!
Inspiration can come from almost anywhere – an experience from our past, an imagined encounter from our future, a chance remark overheard, a dream, a child’s game.
How will the characters of your new story be inspired?  How will they inspire others?
We invite you to explore any path of inspiration in your story for this contest.
Good luck!

Ensure your submission follows these rules:
  • Correct length (350 words or less)
  • Correct spelling and grammar

    Sharing a Post

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
