2021-Micro-01 – “Gold”
We are excited to announce our first Micro Fiction contest! These tiny masterpieces are stories containing just 100 words or less.
Our first Micro Fiction prompt is simply the word “Gold”. Gold can be money, or a color, or even a concept. Gold can symbolize wealth or winning or prosperity or treasure, or a multitude of more intricate meanings.
What story lines come to mind when you consider the word “Gold”? How would your characters react to a golden sunset? Living their golden years? Meeting a gypsy with a golden earring? The possibilities are endless.
We invite you to enter a story with 100 words or less inspired by our “Gold” prompt. We look forward to all your exciting, unique ideas!
