For this contest, we want you to try to craft a tiny story (300 words or less!) that tells a big story or captures a big idea—or maybe just describes a single moment or a single thing in extreme and unusual detail.
This sounds easy, but it shouldn’t be! If anything, you might need more time to craft your small story because every word and phrase becomes more important.
Length: 300 words or fewer
Deadline: June 15, 11:59 p.m.
Results: We will select three winners, as well as a few honorable mentions, whose names will be listed in the magazine.
First place will receive $50, second place $25, third place $10.
We will consider all stories for potential publication.
We hope you’ve been enjoying Stone Soup, the website and magazine by and for creative kids around the world. There are lots of ways you can get involved and make a difference.
