Contest Five: “Fables”
Fables have been a part of storytelling as long as we’ve been telling stories. Fables do more than entertain: they also present a lesson or attempt to teach a moral. Traditionally, fables feature anthropomorphic animals as main character(s).
For the best chance of winning this writing contest, your story or poem should feature at least one animal as a primary character—does not have to be the protagonist, and does not have to speak, but certainly can do both—and should contain a lesson or moral. The lesson or moral may be humorous or somber.
No fee is required for this contest. You will have an opportunity to make an optional donation once your entry is submitted.
Submissions open March 15 and close April 1. For award information and guidelines, visit http://sparkanthology.org/contests/five/.
