Microfiction and poetry contest #9 – stone


This sturdy building material is hard and unforgiving, but not indestructible. Hitting two together may result in a spark. Maybe this spark will be the spark of inspiration leading to a story or poem?
Let's see what you'll write about stones.




Core rules:

  • At all times follow the Fundamental Rules of the Guild and the Moderation Policy for Forum Contests.
  • After reading the above this should be obvious: No plagiarism and respect copyright laws.
  • Your submission must be written by you and specifically for this contest.
  • This is a place for original fiction, no fanfiction allowed.
  • No explicit sex, but you may fade to black.
  • No excessive violence or gore.
  • Don’t forget to subscribe to this thread. You will receive updates on the contest and on the number of entries, and reminders about the deadline here. I will not PM them.
  • The winner of this contest will be honoured in our Hall of Fame.


Contest rules:

  • The prompt for this contest is stone.
  • There will be a minimum word count of 5 and a maximum of 500
  • Every literary or poetry style is permitted.
  • Please PM @Calle the entries and give it as title MFP#9 - (Your Title).

How often are these run? Sad I missed this one but I'll certainly put something forward for the next one!

@deadleopard I try to run these once a month. Sometimes it takes a bit longer if I'm busy.

There are 2 contests I alternate. This one is for short stories and poems between 5 and 500 words, the other is for stories between 500 and 5000 words. The next contest will be another RPGC, and after that will be a new MF&P




And a general announcement: there will be no voting thread this time because out of the 2 entries I unfortunately had to disqualify one.
The winning entry will be added to the Hall of Fame shortly.
