Entry deadline - Saturday June 24, 2023 - 12 pm ET (New York time)
 Countdown to entry deadline: 


Writing Subscribers enjoy the following:

  • Fast publication
  • Unlimited submissions
  • Submissions that pass our basic rules will be published
  • Access to all premium writing events
  • Basic editing assistance
  • Priority support ticket response


We invite you to write up to 100 words on the theme of “hero”.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes – Ghandi, Atticus Finch, Wonder Woman, or your fifth grade teacher.  They may be universally recognized and admired, or they may be quiet and unassuming.
Heroes give us the best version of ourselves. They possess qualities that we can emulate and work toward. We can also become heroes of our own stories, fictional or otherwise!

For this special event, you may enter fiction or non-fiction. In addition to writing a story, you may write an essay, memoir, or opinion piece, or you may report on a real-life hero.  Each submission must be 100 words or less, but you can send as many submissions as you want.
Every submission that passes our basic guidelines will be shortlisted and published, giving each author a chance at our Yearly Grand Prize.

This premium event is for Writing Subscribers only, and gives them a great way to earn more credits toward rewards and prizes!  Monthly subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.
Ensure your submission follows these rules:
  • Correct length (100 words or less)
  • Correct spelling and grammar
  • Family-friendly content
Be sure and include a reference to our theme "Hero".

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!
