Last Call: Switchback: June 2012 Contest

15 June 2012

Each month Switchback provides a prompt and we want you to send us
your best work inspired by that prompt. Entries need only be inspired
by the prompt, they do not need to incorporate the text directly. The
winning entry as decided by our editors will be featured on
Switchback. Contest submissions can be poetry, fiction, nonfiction, or
even art but must be 500 words or under. Please send us only one
submission per prompt and only previously unpublished works. We accept
simultaneous submissions but please notify us immediately of
acceptance elsewhere. Make sure your name DOES NOT appear on the
submission itself.

The deadline for submissions is 5:00 pm on the last day of the month.

   The June prompt is: “Two people face each other, each hoping the
other would do something they both want.  They wait.  To break the
silence, to spark negotiations, one of them says, ‘I accidentally ate
the whole thing.'”
