100 Word Short Story Smash with Chris Spencer

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States (map)

Local author and personality Chris Spencer returns for the 10th 100 Word Short Story Smash. Write your heart out, send it in and compete for fame, glory, and a little bit of cash in this popular ode to concise editing! 

Participants can submit and listen to short stories that will be read aloud by well-dressed rhetoricians in a stunning setting.

Strict rules about the submissions. Violators will be publicly humiliated.

1.  All short stories must be 100 words exactly; not 99 or less or 101 plus. The title does not count in the 100 word total.

2.  Submissions must be sent ASAP and no later than October 20th to my e-mail so they can be printed and rehearsed
prior to public reading.

3.  Short stories will be presented by readers with English language skills, sublime elocution and no deep-rooted fear of public speaking.

4.  Cash prizes will be awarded.

5. You may submit up to two stories.  Stories must be original works.

6. If you would like suggestions on how to write a 100 word story, sent a request for a guideline to my email address above.

This year we move the Short Story Smash to Zech Hall to feature our popular Piano Bar with drinks being served throughout the evening.

All Seats $12
