March Writing Prompt Contest

Congratulations to Alicia Dekker, our February Writing Prompt Contest Winner!

Licks of spark and flame draw us in, like oxygen, and blow us, heated into the night. We consume each other, you and I, like kindling, like old wood. Snow melts at our periphery, a watery consequence, blurring blizzard and fire. And when the crack occurs, —What a sound that tiny fissure makes! —we part, wondering at our trance, our dance, and fight to see each other through the smoke.

The March Writing Prompt is:

“March came in like a lion…”

The deadline for posting an entry and voting is March 31, 2011.

The rules: Write a micro story of 100 words or less based on the prompt as a comment to this post.  You may enter as many times as you like.

Each post will have a thumb button to the right of it.  One click equals one vote, and only one vote is allowed per computer.  So have your family, friends, co-workers, the nice barister from your local coffee shop, log on and vote for your story.

Contest winners will be entered to win a free print copy of our first issue in April and winning entries will be archived on our website.

Good Luck and Happy Writing!
