Convozine.com December Challenge – “Notes from Tomorrow” Writing Contest

An approaching new year gets us thinking about what lies ahead. Possibility, perspective, paradigm shifts, mystery…the future can mean a lot of things. But whatever we experience tomorrow will shape how we remember today. This month’s challenge is to write a creative short story or essay on the theme “notes from tomorrow”.  What that means is up to you. What will your journal entry look like tomorrow? What advice would your future self have for you? What will events look like with the perspective of time? What does “tomorrow” really mean to you? And what does that say about today? The possibilities are endless. How short or long you make your story is up to you, but we recommend anywhere from 250-1000 words. Submissions can be in the form of a short story, or an essay. Above all, be creative and have fun with it!   See the current entries here: http://convozine.com/sections/105_dec-challenge   Entries begin now.  Voting runs through Dec 31th, 2010.
