Ever wanted to enter a literary contest? Ever talked yourself out of it because you couldn’t imagine yourself writing pages and pages of stuff that made sense?
Well screw that! Why not write a story that fits on a postcard?
Geist magazine is holding it’s 6th annual Literal Literary Postcard Story Contest, which, as they point out, is “the writing contest whose name is almost as long as the entries!”

First Prize: $250
Second Prize: $150
Third Prize: $100
(more than one prize per category may be awarded)
Honourable Mentions: Swell Geist gifts
Send us a postcard along with a story that relates to the image. The relationship can be as tangential as you like, so long as there is some clear connection to the image or place.
