(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI'm a 25 year-old Canadian gal living in the nation's capital. I love to paint, draw, sing and write. I've always enjoyed creative writing, but I only started writing poetry last year - and it's becoming my favourite form of creative expression. I have already learned so much from the talented poets here at PS.

New Contest: Moment of Truth


Blog Posted:6/3/2013 7:04:00 PM

What to Submit?

1 original, poem/story on the theme of ............. a life-changing moment. Maybe you met someone who had an impact on your life, or experienced something physical that changed your life forever, or you made an observation that altered your perspective... The possibilities are limitless! This can be fiction or it can be based on real life events - whatever you like.

The only acceptable forms are PROSE or NARRATIVE - with a maximum of 300 words (that's roughly half a page of text in a Word doc). I'm looking for a story that pulls the reader right into it and doesn't let them go until the very last word - a special glimpse into your thoughts or the thoughts of your character.

Feel free to soupmail me if you have any questions!

Happy Writing! :)

    Hahaha Isaiah, that comment was directed at the (female) poets who commented below. Of course I would also love to see some prose from the gentlemen of the Soup! :)

    I agree with Andrea...this is going to be challenging. I will work on something, after I think of something I wish to share. Hmmm.... hugs, Catie :)
