2022-Micro-05 - "Smile"

The ubiquitous “happy face” is a symbol of something a great deal more profound: the Smile.  A smile can transform a grey day into sunshine.  A smile can change a person’s inner life, their outlook, their outcome.  A smile can be a weapon, good medicine, or a place of safety in a weary world.
We look forward to your new stories of 100 words or less inspired by our “Smile” prompt.  You might enjoy reading some of our previous shortlisted stories that mentioned a smile.  We hope these will inspire you while you’re coming up with ideas for your own new story.

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!
