  We were intrigued by all the different responses to our “green” prompt.  These stories ran the gamut from horror to healing, from baking a mousse to planting tomatoes. We were treated to mudslides, flags, violins and even M & M candies!  Many of you also experimented with new writing forms, which are an inspiration to everyone. Once again, we are delighted with the endless imaginations of all you great writers. Our Patrons do us proud!

Thanks to each of you for another highly successful contest.

2022-Micro-01 - "Green"

With spring just around the corner, the color that is foremost in our thoughts is … green!
And of course we all know green is more than just a color. It has so many meanings, all of them worthy of a story or two! There are greenhorns, green pastures, village greens, green lights, green tea.  What or who else is green? Climate change activists, money, shamrocks, envy … the list goes on and on.
What other meanings spring to your mind, as you explore this wonderful prompt?
We invite you to enter a story with 100 words of less inspired by your own interpretation of our “green” prompt.  We can’t wait to see what all of you come up with! 
Here are some previous 100-word stories to inspire you:

Good luck in the contest!

Thank you Voice.Club for the opportunity to write a drabble. A challenge indeed to write a story with beginning, middle and end in one hundred words exactly. For me, the theme “green” conjures up images of paints, spring, grass, gardens and conservation. Congratulations for encouraging the creative spirit in writers.

Thanks for reading my story about time and for the encouraging words. I’m new to flash fiction and it presents new writing challenges, but it’s fun and helps refine the craft.

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!
