Virtual Event

Mark your calendars to take part in our 100-Word Microstory Contest—a free online writing competition for a variety of age groups. You don't have to be an Iowa Writers' Workshop grad—or even have participated in a flash writing contest before—to join in the fun. Just create a story in 100 words or less that uses one of two specific writing prompts.

We will announce the writing prompts on our website on Monday, July 10, 2023, at 9 a.m. CDT.
