Twenty-third Annual Acrostic Story Contest
Cautious as ever. . .
Cautious as ever... Cautious, but optimistic, we are moving to the third letter of the alphabet for the opening of the twenty-third edition of our annual contest. Defying caution, writers can breeze right through Z and A to end with a sentence starting with B. Entries must begin with the phrase above and have no more than twenty-six sentences. Fewer or more will result in disqualification. Generally, use a narrative (beginning, middle, end) format, with no racism, sexism, or ageism and no obscenity. Huge thanks to the judge, who will pick three winners and up to three honourable mentions, all of whose authors receive a year's subscription to The Leaf. In this contest, half the entry fees are divided among the three winners, and all stories recognized are published in the spring issue.
