Weekly Writing Challenges: Microprose

Welcome! You’ve found YeahWrite’s microprose challenge. From 2014-2016 this challenge ran as a weekly prompted 42-word story and poetry challenge. Starting in 2017, the challenge features prose only with unique prompts and word counts and runs once per month on Wednesdays. Keep an eye on our Sunday kickoff post to find out if the microprose challenge is running this week.

On weeks the challenge runs, our Wednesday evening voting post will give you the opportunity to participate in the popular vote on the microprose as well as the nonfiction and fiction|poetry grids. We announce popular vote winners and editorial staff picks on Fridays, so make sure to stick around all week.

Still not sure how to participate? Hop over to our guide for new participants. See you on the grid!
