  • Each entry must consist of a single sentence, but you may submit as many entries as you wish.

  • Sentences may be of any length but we strongly recommend that entries not go beyond 50 or 60 words.ย Entries must be โ€œoriginalโ€ (as it were) and previously unpublished.

  • Due to the volume of submissions, if your entry is missing a name or location it won’t be considered.

  • The contest accepts submissions every day of the livelong year, but the deadline for each year’s contest is June 30th.

  • Winners are announced in late July or early August each year. The 2021 winners were announced on August 13th.

  • In keeping with the gravitas, high seriousness, and general bignitude of the contest, the grand prize winner will receive โ€ฆ a pittance (and bragging rights).
