I entered the NYC Midnight contest for the first time this month with the Short Story Challenge. There were over 6000 writers entering this first Round!
How it works:
- writers are divided into groups of around 28 people
- each group gets a prompt of Genre, Subject, Character
- within 8 days each writer submits a story with the prompt in under 2500 words
- then the top 5 from each group will advance to Round 2 in April.
