Windows into the Multiverse
A Clean Fiction Writing Contest
Time & Location
Jan 01, 2022, 7:00 AM – Jan 31, 2022, 12:00 AM
About the event
The painting above (see Winter Edition 2021) is what I prefer to call a “Window”. In a way paintings, photos, and other visual arts are “Windows” into another space. Whether it is the artist’s mind or a recreation of an actual place, these “Windows” allow us to pause for a moment and see someone else’s view. Why the “Multiverse” then? Many authors use paintings, photos, and other visual arts in order to write fantastical stories of different places, times, and planets. When you look at the painting above, where do you go? A quiet planet in the outer rim? A hideaway in the forest of the faere? Another world found in the center of the earth? This “Window” can lead anywhere your imagination can create. So to our March 20th, 2022 Spring Edition along with the image above. You are asked to write a micro-story beginning with “Through the window I saw...” using the painting above as inspiration. The only restriction on your creativity is that you keep your micro-story clean. Though, if you have decided to read this magazine, I would imagine that this would not be at all limiting for you. Submissions will open January 1st, 2022 and end January 31st, 2022. Please keep your submission to 1,000 words or less. Send your micro-story, your name as you would like it to appear, genre of your story, social media handle/website, and an email for contact purposes to CleanFictionMagazine@gmail.com We will not use your micro-stories without your permission and the winner/s will be sent a page/s for approval. Depending on the number of submissions we receive, there will be either winners in several genre categories OR an overall winner. Each winner or the overall winner will receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card and an author feature. The winner/s will be decided by the Clean Fiction staff and excerpts may be used for promotional purposes. If there is a tie between two micro-stories, Clean Fiction will have voting to decide the overall winner. Happy Writing!
