This contest is open to new writers only. All ages are encouraged to participate, but we ask that only those just starting on their writing journeys submit.
Your manuscript must be between 1,000 and 5,000 words.
There is a prompt for this contest and the prompt must be followed for your story to be considered.
The prompt is: a hiker is lost in the woods when disaster strikes.
