Shortlist

Contest Public Voting Prize

Due to user feedback, the Voice Club has decided to no longer offer a monetary prize for Public Voting.
The primary purpose of Public Voting should be to share your work with the world, and to introduce more people to the joy of reading!

Grand Prize winners will continue to be selected and awarded by the Voice Team.

"Good News"

The past years have been difficult. The world at the moment does not offer much happiness.  A bleak outlook is about the best some people can imagine.
As writers, however, we can imagine and create other worlds. Perhaps it’s time for us to birth new worlds of joy and love of life.  We invite you to lighten someone’s day with a “good news” story of 350 words or less. 
Here are some stories from our past competitions that have made all of us feel better! 

Good luck in the contest!

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!
