Windows into the Multiverse Submissions
Send Submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Time & Location

About the event
The painting above 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 water planet on the outreaches of space? The high seas on a pirate vessel? A mysterious island full of secrets? This “Window” can lead anywhere your imagination can create.
What the Contest Entails: 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 Clean Fiction magazine, I would imagine that this would not be at all limiting for you.
Submissions will open June 1st, 2022 and end June 30th, 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 the story, social media handle/website, and an email for contact purposes to email@example.com. We will not use your micro-stories without your permission, and the winner/s will be sent a page/s for approval. The winner/s will appear in our September 20th, 2022 Autumn Edition along with the image on this page. They will also receive an author feature to go along with their micro-story (a $40 value).
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.
We cannot wait to see what you do with this new image and are excited to read your submissions! Happy Writing!
