TheNextBigWriter Times Are Tough Writing Competition

Per the competition announcement:

It is of a homeless man leaning against a storefront during the Great Depression. Write about this man and the picture. What is he doing there? Where is he? Who is he? Why is he there? Why is he homeless? These are some of the questions open to exploration.

Contestants are asked to submit a Drabble or a Droubble.  What are they?  A Drabble is a short story that is exactly 100 words.  A Droubble is a short story that is exactly 200 words.

Two winners will be selected and each will receive $100.  The deadline is January 15, 2009.

You have to be a member of the site to enter and site membership costs $49.95 per year or 7.95 per month.  I’ve been a member and it’s worth it.  They have contests all year long and the other members of the site provide really great feedback.  At its core, TheNextBigWriter is an online writing workshop.

If you’re looking for interesting writing contests to stimulate your writing and the company of other motivated writers, give the site a look.
