Throughout the year I host Short Story writing Challenges. These are generally two week long events designed around a theme. The participants are challenged to write a short story, poem, essay, letter, etc that fits with that theme. Entries that are accepted are published in an anthology!

Past Challenges have included 2019 Halloween Challenge, 2019 Christmas Spirit Challenge, 2020 Love Letters Challenge, 2020 Spring Fever Challenge and the Halloween 2020 Challenge.
