can you write about an anniversary in 50 words or less?

On The Premises, an online magazine, is running another mini-contest. Here’s what they say about it: “Show, tell, or evoke a complete story in no more than 50 words in which the idea of some kind of anniversary plays a part. Remember we value creativity so the most obvious ideas might not be the ones most likely to win (unless they are REALLY well done, because we care about quality, too).

One entry per author. No fee for entering. Maximum length of 50 words.

Deadline: Friday, May 5, 2017, 11:59 PM Eastern Time.

Hyphenated Words: If the hyphenated word is generally considered a single word, it counts as one word. (Like "twenty-five" or "jack-o-lantern.") Otherwise each part of the hyphenated word counts separately.

Prizes: $25 for first, $15 for second, $10 for third. Honorable mentions get published but make no money.

To submit, go to and follow the instructions. If you don't already have a (free) Submittable account, you'll be prompted to make one.”
