Poetry contest. Twenty word minimum. First place will be decided based on the poem, of course, though the number of comments posted by others will be factored in (critiques or praise, no one word or three word quickies) and those who comment should "like" it to keep the judges looking for updated reads. Write a poem about anything. Aim for the gut. Winner gets $100.

Write a story about anything. One thousand word minimum. One month limit. While likes (and comments) are great, and their support is essential, they will not count as votes. Myself and a panel of writers from different literary interests will take a week to pick the winner, allowing writers to enter until the last minute. The winner will be decided based on the story, spelling/grammar, and of course, style and feeling. Step in the ring, bleed on the page. Winner gets $500.

While Prose. is a free-expression home for writers, and I love it all, I would like to see longer pieces from the talent here, and less one-word and shorter things. Two thousand word minimum on this one, writers. No rules beyond that. Be as vulgar as you like, be as proper as you like to be, but be as free as you like. I will personally send the winner of this challenge $200.
