Pic 1 k

This is our first Pic 1 k
Here are the rules:
Remember the old saying “A picture is worth a thousand words?” Our challenge to you: PROVE IT! On the first of each month, there will be a picture posted. Your job is to write a flash story – 1,000 words or less – based on that picture and send it in. The top four stories will be published on the blog. The top two will be published in the issue and the grand prize winner will receive an interview on the blog. Submissions will run from the 1st of the month to the 15th. Winners will be announced by the 20th and the 1st of the following month there will be a new Pic 1 k and a new issue of Soft Whispers. There are no guidelines other than it has to be 1,000 words or less. . . and 1,000 means 1,000. If your story (not including the title, name, and bio) is 1,001, it will be deleted. Send submissions to softwhisperssubmissions@gmail.com . Story MUST be attached – nothing in the body of the email except your introduction, where you found Soft Whispers, and a short bio. Please also put Pic 1 k in the subject line or else it won’t be filtered and we won’t get it! ATTENTION ARTISTS! If you have a picture that you would like to use for the Pic 1 k program, please follow the above instructions and attach your art as a .jpg file! If we use your art for the Pic 1 k, you will receive a interview on the blog.
Please note that for this month, we are extending the deadline to 25th!
