TINY STORIES CONTEST
For ages 13 and up with a valid GVPL library card. Contest runs September 16 to October 28, 2019.
Tiny Stories are really, really, really short stories – in this case, 420 characters, including every letter, space and punctuation mark. You might think the Tiny Stories idea is inspired by Twitter (140 characters), but here’s a fun fact: Facebook used to restrict status updates to 420 characters before they increased the limit to 60,000.
So, what we’re looking for from you is a short story that’s the length of the original Facebook status update.
- 14 winners will each receive a $30.00 gift certificate from a local bookstore
