Short Story Contest

Write a new, original short story on your own blog using whatever is in your Spam or Trash folders for inspiration. (For an example, see Spammerview, but make yours different!) If you have nothing in your own Spam bucket, borrow something from Spomment of the Day.

Post a link to your entry in the comments below. I will pick the one I like best and, provided the winner doesn’t mind sharing his or her email address with me, will send the author a $10 gift card (via email).

Deadline: 11:59 PM on Saturday, January 10, 2014.

Winners will be announced on Sunday.


Holly Jahangiri is the author of Trockle; A Puppy, Not a Guppy; Innocents & Demons; and A New Leaf for Lyle. You can find her books on Amazon at For more information on her children's books, please visit
