Reedsy Prompts: Short Story Contest — $50 Reward

web site

Deadline: October 9, 2020 11:59 EST

This week, we invite you to dig into your characters’ hopes and dreams for the future. Do they long for it, or dread it? How are they trying to prepare? Who knows, maybe they’ll even get a glimpse at events still to come…
Write about a character putting something into a time capsule.
Write about a character preparing to go into stasis for decades (or centuries).
Write about two characters on the verge of a life-changing event, but one has rigged the outcome.
Write about a character who’s had their future foretold from birth — but isn’t sure if they believe it.
Write about a character who can suddenly only “remember” their future, not their past.

Reedsy challenges you to create a short story based on these prompts. Winners will be featured on Reedsy Prompts and receive $50 via PayPal! In order to have your story considered, it is important you follow the submission guidelines below.

Submission Guidelines:
Choose a prompt from this week's contest page.
Write an original story of 1,000-3,000 words.
Submit the story from your Reedsy Prompts profile before 11:59pm EST on October 9th.
