The Member-Sponsored Always Check Your Junk Email Contest
|Deadline:||Dec 28, 2014|
Life often teaches us little lessons every day. Sometimes you have to wade through the junk in order to find the gold. As we learned in the Scribophile forum thread Always Check Your Junk Email, sometimes the good can be found in the bad. Therefore we thought we’d have some fun.
Write a flash fiction piece or poem that expresses the theme of finding the positive in the midst of the negative. To enter, write a flash fiction story or a poem of no more than 300 words. The piece must contain 4 of these 5 phrases: "porn", "Cialis", "Viagra", "phishing scam", or "Nigerian scam"; and it must contain either one positive about Junk email or finding a positive in amid the negative. Because this contest is short and sweet we’ll end a few days after Christmas and award prize in time for the New Year!
