About the event

The painting below 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 in 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 this painting where do you go? The turbulence of the time stream? A storm at sea? A nightmare in the midst of the dark? This “Window” can lead anywhere your imagination can create. I cannot wait to read about what YOU see in this image. 

This popular contest is a staple of our magazine and will continue to accept submissions quarterly. You will find one winner per section of this edition. All 5 of these stories were so good that we couldn’t help but give them all a prize.

How to Participate

You are asked to write a micro-story beginning with “Through the window, I saw...” using the painting below as inspiration. The only restriction on your creativity is that you keep your micro-story clean. All genres are accepted.

Submissions will open on January 1st and end on January 31st. Please keep your submission to between 800 and 1,200 words. Send your micro-story, your name as you would like it to appear, the genre of the story, your social media handle/website, and an email for contact purposes to

We will not use your micro-stories without your permission and the winner/s will be sent pages for approval. The winner/s will appear in our March 20th, 2023 Spring Edition along with the image on this page.

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 ($40 value). 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!
