NYC Midnight Short Story Submission

March 28, 2018

I recently participated in the NYC Midnight Short Story Competition. There were over 4,000 contestants total and roughly 33 people per heat. Each heat had a different assignment and only five folks were selected to the next round. My assignment was a <2500 word short story with the following parameters:

Genre: Drama

Character: A Child Suffering from Dwarfism

Subject: An Escape


Unfortunately, I was not one of the five writers lucky enough to advance in the competition...BUT I was selected as the top Honorable Mention for my heat, essentially meaning my story was 6th place. I am pleased with these results, and I'm excited to try again next year!
