The Zen Garden Club invites you to create a very short story (350 words or less) based on the picture prompt on the contest page. Use your imagination, and see what stories you see in this picture, entitled "Blue-White Stairs"! Their ongoing writing contests are open to all, including past winners. Read the 140+ stories that were shortlisted in the past contests, and get to know the winners on the new Winners List! The judge for this contest will be YOU, the general public! Instead of the usual illustrious, highly qualified judges, Zen Garden staff will choose the short list, then let all of their readers select the top three winners.
