Finalist at August #pw1k
It’s called A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words or #pw1k for short.
Ms. Howland chooses a picture and asks writers to write a short story or an excerpt of a story (up to 1000 words), and send to her through the contest email.
She then reads all entries, chooses the finalists and post them on her blog, opening up for vote. The winner will receive a short critique—and I’ve heard Ms. Howland is a superb editor.
The picture above is the one used on the August contest.
And I’m a finalist for August.
And I would like to win that critique. #shamelessselfpromotion
You can read (and vote for) the other three entries on her blog.
