Event Details

Write a story using 100 words on one of four topics.

All ages. No geographical restrictions but story must be written in English. The Contest supports Ethos Literacy, a nonprofit providing free reading, writing and ESL tutoring to adults.

Grand prize: $200. Winning and honorable mention stories will be published in an e-magazine.


Ethos Literacy fulfills the ambitions of the immigrant who is striving to achieve the American Dream and the low literate adult who thinks the dream is no longer within their reach by empowering them with the necessary literacy skills to communicate like their peers without reproach. Through free one-on-one or small group instruction we give these individuals the opportunity to learn in an intimate, supportive environment where they can address their literacy gaps free from society’s stamp of shame.
