20 Sentence Story Contest

June 20, 2018


Do you have a short & sweet story to tell?

“Write freely and as rapidly as possible and throw the whole thing on paper.” – J.S.


Wow! What an amazing response to this contest! Thank you to every single person who took the time and guts to submit their work. We had so many talented folks offer us the fruits of their labors, a heartfelt tale, a school assignment, a one-off whim, and true and astounding stories. It was a true privilege to be able to read and assess so many pieces of work. We hope, no matter the result of this contest, you will continue to express yourself through writing in all its countless forms. We hope you nearly always write, just as you nearly always breathe.

After much deliberation, our team has chosen our First Prize winner and 5 Judges Awards. We were pleased to receive 79 entries from cities all over California, 7 different states, and 4 countries! It was no easy task and we apologize for the delay!

Congratulations to our winners:
