Short Story-Telling Contest

It’s the end of the world...tell us a story about it!

Pull out your computer and dust off your typewriters - it's time for the WKMS Short Storytelling Competition!

Entrants submit a written short story accompanied by an audio recording. The story length should be between four to six minutes. 

This year’s theme is post-apocalyptic fiction in connection to Hopkinsville’s Big Read book, Station Eleven. Romance, comedy, horror, it's all possible - as long as it's set in a post-apocalyptic setting.
