Everyone’s imagination took flight in this contest!  We thoroughly enjoyed all the stories, and were especially impressed with the offerings from our new members. The winner for this prompt was chosen as ‘the most promising newcomer’.  His story “Liberty” seems to have many layers, especially on consecutive readings. 

Thanks to all of you for another highly successful contest!

"Wings"

 
It’s spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and many of us are feeling the first stirrings of hope after an unbearably long year!
What better prompt and picture for this particular time than “Wings”?  The concept of wings has so many meanings, all of them with such positive connotations!  Angels, butterflies, moths, airplanes, soaring, flying … the list of associations goes on and on.
We invite you to explore your own ideas on the theme of Wings, as you write your story of 350 words or less.
Good luck in the contest!

Double-check your story against the rules below, and make all corrections BEFORE you submit!  Multiple entries of the same story will be disqualified.

Ensure your submission follows these rules:
  • Correct length (350 words or less)
  • Correct spelling and grammar
  • Family-friendly content
Include some reference to Wings

So close now to reading and commenting on each and every story. So please ”All” make sure you read every story and give an honest comment, that way we get to know each other, and yes, become even better writers through our comments. It also makes it so worthwhile for the Voice club to relate to each of you, to see you as not just writers but friends. That is what it means to be a family member of the Voice club ?. .

Looking forward to it, although I’m going to visit my Mum and Dad for a few days, so I shall have to fit in my reading and commenting between the time I’m spending with them. I love you all, but Mum and Dad have to come first. I haven’t seen them for nearly a year.

Sharing a Post

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

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a 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!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
