The Contest is now closed.
Once again, to celebrate this year’s edition of the Extremely Short Play Festival, New Theatre of Ottawa is sponsoring an Extremely Short Story Contest!
Our inspiration is Ernest Hemingway’s famous six-word short story: “For sale: baby shoes, never used.”
Here are the Extremely Short Rules:
- In the comments to this post, enter your name, email address and SIX WORD STORY. (Your email address will not be posted publicly.) Longer entries will be disqualified.
- All entries must have a time stamp no later than 11:59 pm, Sunday, October 27, 2013 (Ottawa time).
At the Festival preview on October 30, director John Koensgen will announce the winning entry. The winner will receive two complimentary tickets to the festival performance of his or her choice (October 31 through November 10).
Ladies and gentlemen, sharpen those quills!
