Stories have been passed from generation to generation since man could talk. The best things come in small parcels and so it is with stories.

SteemTrail’s @Writing-Trail is excited to present this innovative new Short Story Writing Contest. On a weekly basis there will be a new theme about which to write your 100 word (or less) stories. So, please get involved with the very active and popular writing side of steemit.

We hope that the challenge will be fun and encourage engagement between the writers and the readers. The best stories will be published here on steemit and on other Social Media Platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

The first contest will start on Monday, 12th March and end at 6pm New York time on Saturday, 17th March. The theme of the week and full Guidelines will be posted on Monday.

Thank you from your 100-Words Contest organiser, please follow, upvote, resteem, generally be terribly nice to @ebryans



Yay! Delight. I will join definitely. resteem and my Twitter feed. Thanks to the organizers.

Upped & resteemed. Will it still be limited to a certain rep group?

No, open to everyone! Thank you for the support, appreciated!

Great stuff! Looking forward to getting involved. 100 words will be a decent challenge :)

If people write well, hopefully their rep will increase!

This is open to everyone! So, unrestricted rep level. There was a lot of people who felt left out by the under 55 restriction so ... here we are!

What a lovely reaction! Thank you

😊 Well, this is a great news. I can participate in 100-words, now. I was really sad when I found out I couldn't join #fiftywords.

Is the story title counted in the 100 words? 🤡

No, but if you try to use the title as a part of the story then yes, it will be counted. Put it this way, you may have a title and a picture caption but neither will be included in the story being assessed by any judge. I think that is an easier definition. Does that tidy it up for you? Good question! Namaste.

I am excited! Up voted and resteemed!!

I'm sure it would be fun! Can't wait for the start! 🙂 And hoping for lot of good reads!

100 words! That's tight! Just wrote my 1st entry and having a hard time getting it under 112, my mind trying out twitter/text cheats to bring it down!

oops - in my caffeinated enthusiasm, I forgot to wait for the theme

Cool, it will be out Monday before the evening NY time. Namaste! Followed you too. We have very similar interests, though I am a Brit but you would not know - most of my life in Australia and Sth America.
