Our writing contests have become so popular that our volunteer staff needs more help to tend our garden. With your support, we can sustain our family-friendly floral writing site. We have recently begun asking for a subscription to enter a contest. If you are a previous 1st place or prompt winner, this does not apply, and you are good to go. If you’re new to the site be sure and read our Mission page to see all the wonderful benefits you can enjoy. Thanks for your continuing support!
Some of you love public voting, and others enjoy getting feedback from a highly qualified judge. We now have something for everyone!
We’re delighted to introduce our new judge, Sherry Torgent, who will select the Grand Prize Winner and list of Finalists for this contest. Sherry is a publishing editor, writer, and published author. Welcome to ZenGarden.club, Sherry! We look forward to reading your comments about the selected Violet stories.
We invite you to create a short short story – 350 words or less – inspired by the featured picture and haiku. What characters, background, stories and plots do you imagine?
Study the current picture and haiku, then write your story.
Deadline: Wednesday, March 25, 2020 5 pm ET. Please read the guidelines below before entering.
