Welcome, Germies, to this month’s writing challenge! This challenge will begin today and will end February 28th. However, you are welcome to come back anytime to complete the challenge and submit it below in the comments section. We will pick a few of our favorites that are submitted during this month, though, and they will be featured in our Lit section.
– Write an object lesson that is 1,000 words or less.
– You will be giving life to an inanimate object. The object you choose will become the subject of your short story.
– Your object can be anything: a pencil, a book, sunglasses, graffiti, a party cup, a tree, etc. You can walk around your house, your neighborhood, and even your school for inspiration. Look at objects and details and simply wonder about their background, their perspective, their story. Get creative!
Submitting for this challenge is easy. Simply email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “February Writing Challenge” as the subject of your email, and include your name, age, and country in the body of your message. If you have any questions, or if you’re having problems submitting, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Everyone who completes the challenge will be responded to and informed as to whether or not their piece has been chosen to be featured. Since the deadline for this challenge is February 28th, do not expect an email from us until the beginning of March.
