A Day in the Life of...

A Flipside Contest

Hosted by [*Amy*]



1.   500 words plus

2.   This must be a new and original piece created specifically for this contest.

3.   It must be created by you. You may have people edit it if you like.

4.   Keep language and other content to a PG 13 level

5.   You will be judged on your spelling and grammar  along with creativity and originallity.

6.   Also, when you put your story up, don't put it up with a title, at least not on here where I can see who did what. I am going to "blind judge" them. So I can't know what each person wrote. Thanks.


This is a monthly contest that I will be hosting. I am asking for theme ideas, so if you have any, contact me. As long as there are enough entries, I will do this every month for the entire year.

The theme this time around will be: A Day in the Life of...a fairy tale being or creature. Tell me about one day in the life of whatever fairy tale being or creature you want. Be as creative as you want. Make sure to enjoy yourself! If you need to know more about the theme, check out the upcoming contest section at the bottom of the page.



The deadline will now be on the 3rd of every month.

Judging will take place midnight on the 3rd.

The deadline for this contest is now October 3rd at midnight.

Participant Badges



1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will all receive personalized badges.

1st place will also receive a full edit and critique of one of their stories by me. Along with their story being posted for the entire month until the next contest ends.
