Member-Sponsored Chronic Pain Contest
|Aug 31, 2016
The contest theme is chronic pain, of either a physical or emotional nature (or both). An example might be about someone living with chronic pain or emotional distress. Arthritis would qualify, but so, also, would depression.
Submissions should be of a fictional nature, and the character experiencing the pain need not be human, could be any sort of living creature. Do not submit memoir type entries, as judging those vs. fictional entries might be problematical.
