52 25 word story contests for 2015.

In 2015 we're going to be running weekly contests. They are REALLY QUICK and  REALLY FUN. Writer Gaetan Pappalardo (Edutopia.com writer / author of Louie Licks and the Wicked Snakes) contributed the 25 Word Stories act writing challenge to our Storyteller Manual and it's been a favorite ever since. 

The restrictions are wonderful and can get you going for a larger bigger story. It's a great exercise for writers, and works perfectly with the Storyteller Cards.

Here's an example by Gaetan:

And for fans of reality and fantasy, we'll be running two separate contests each week. One for a random Storyteller Card and one for a random Storyteller Fantasy Card. Choose your favorite or enter both!

There will be an end of year prize for both the Storyteller Cards contest and the Storyteller Cards Fantasy contest. At the end of each week we will announce the winner for the week. At the end of the year, we will put together all of the weekly winners and randomly choose one from each of the two contests. So if you win multiple weeks, you have a better chance of winning at the end of the year! 

The end of year prizes are as follows. We will hopefully be adding to this as the year goes on.
