THE WRITE PRACTICE and SHORT FICTION BREAK partnered to offer a fantastic contest experience. Hundreds of writers joined and wrote their stories and exchanged critique and feedback online for about two weeks. Then we submitted our efforts to the judges, who will announce winners in about six weeks.
Meanwhile we can go to the list and read each others final submissions and vote on our favorites. And you can too! There are some dynamite stories on this long list, so be prepared for a lot of inspiring entertainment! Check it out!
Here is the information and a bit of a sample from my story:
POWER OF THE RING AND THE AMULET
The ring throbbed on her finger to the rhythm of the drums that beat in the jungle clearing. Miira’s heart pounded to the same beat, as she watched men dance in pantomime of hunters stalking wolves. Her wolves. Her family.
The dancers, trimmed in fur and feathers, stabbed the air menacingly with their spears. Miira knew this was no local tribe of hunters. It was the lost tribe of Am Arikka. They sought to capture the wolf pack with whom Miira had spent most of her 13 years.

This spring, Short Fiction Break is partnering with The Write Practice to host a writing contest in which everyone gets published.
