Need a Writing Prompt: You take a walk through the new 7 Wetlands Park in Lakeland/Mulberry. You happen to see a baseball cap dangling from a tree branch to the right of the path. What’s its story?

Need a writing prompt? You are looking forward to coming home to a spotless home after a long day’s work. Once you open your front door, you discover a dirty glass in the sink. It’s not yours…

Or, use the FWA Collections Prompt…Remember, it’s free for FWA members to submit to this annual contest and I think it is time for Lakeland Writers to be represented!

“Where Does Your Muse Live?”

Where Does Your Muse Live is the theme for the 2018 Florida Writers Association Collection, Volume 10 of sixty short pieces, written by FWA members, submitted electronically, published by FWA, and marketed across the nation through national booksellers as well as on our own website.

The Collection is published annually, sponsored by FWA’s Board of Directors and FWA’s Official publisher. Each year presents a new theme and Person of Renown. This year’s Person of Renown is Jim Pons, winner of the 2017 FWA Royal Palm Literary Awards Published Book of the Year with his book Hard Core Love.

Where Does Your Muse Live is all about the residency your Muse takes up in order to stimulate your writing. Is s/he residing in your mind? Does that Muse move around, show up in different places, different people, different characters? Tell us where and how your Muse shows up most often to spark your writing. Fiction, nonfiction, prose, and poetry are all acceptable.

Every entrant is allowed two submissions. Two submissions by a single author may consist of two stories, one story and one poem or two poems. This is a blind judging contest. Only contest administrators know the identity of the author until the winners are announced. Readers love interesting, inspiring, humorous, poignant, silly, sad, or amazing stories. All entrants will receive an entry acknowledgment by email.

Seven judges will score each submission independently, through a reading website. The
highest scoring sixty entries from all electronic submissions received between February 1st, 2017, and 11:59 PM, April 30th, 2018 (Eastern Standard Time) will be published. Only one entry per author is permitted in the sixty highest scoring group for publication.
