Win $500 in a Team Writing Contest

The first ever Stanford Story Slam has opened, a chance for a team of writers to win $500. Anybody can enter the writing contest and the deadline is April 22.

To enter, you must collaborate to write about this prompt: “There are over 15,000 bikes used by students, staff, and faculty to get around Stanford campus. Over 300 bikes are stolen each year. Where do they go?” The Stanford Arts Review will publish the winning entry. Here’s more from the organizers:

Feel free to interpret this prompt broadly and in unexpected ways. You can write in any safe-for-work genre you like. The story must be written and submitted through the Ensemble system. For example, you can’t write the story in Google Docs and then copy-paste it into Ensemble. The story must be no more than 1000 words. A reader should be able to read the story in one sitting. The story must be original, unpublished, and not have been entered in any previous competition or contest.
