Member-Sponsored Something Giant Contest
|Deadline:||Jul 15, 2018|
Chris Drew has welcomed Scrib to run a contest in honor of her late husband. Chris and others who knew Bubba describe him as a gentle giant.
In his memory we’re running a humor contest for all things giant. Giant is up to interpretation. It can be a(n) tree, ocean, sky, mountain, apple, planet, love, galaxy, ostrich, a person, or wherever your imagination leads you.
In lieu of a cash prize or karma, the contest prizes will be in the form of charitable donations to Heifer International. Through humor we can comfort Chris and pay tribute to her husband while helping villages throughout underdeveloped countries. Wiki describes Heifer International as a “global nonprofit working to eradicate poverty and hunger through sustainable, values-based holistic community development.”
Entries will be judged on their interpretation of the prompt, humor, and writing quality. We’re looking for stories which will linger long after the last word.
Prize money for this contest is provided by the Scribophile Writing Contest Prize Fund.
