The Theme: Greed
“Greed is the beginning of so many great narratives. Whether our hero is thrown into a hellish situation by another’s avarice, or if our narrator herself is delightfully (or horrifically) selfish, there are so many ways in which we can be greedy. Show me all of them, and don’t be shy.”
Ready to starting writing? We accept short form narratives in the genres of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, stage & screen, and experimental. Please note that all submissions are blind.
