Scinti Story Contest

30 May 2010

Everyone has a story. We want yours.

We are looking for true stories that astound, enchant, enlighten and startle us. We want to be swept up and away, pulled from our moorings, left shaken and inspired. We want to think, wonder, imagine, believe.

Do you have a story that is especially meaningful to you, something hilarious or harrowing that touched you deeply, changed your heart, your soul, your way of seeing the world? It can be the story of you, a loved one, a stranger, a moment, a day, a lifetime. We hope you’ll share it here with us and people around the world.

Entry Requirements:

1. Become a fan of Scinti on Facebook

2. You can express yourself in any format – stories (10 to 1000 words), poems, photo stories, hand written letters, drawings, … – whatever you can imagine!

3. All formats must be digital (emailed)

Feel free to send previously published stories you have written, such as stories from your blog. If you are using previously-published material, please provide a link (if applicable) to your work so we can give credit where credit is due.

2. Submissions must be true stories, not fictional
