full name / name of organization: 
The Write Contest and Community

It is said that sometimes words get in the way of a good story.

If that is the case, let’s write a story with as few words as possible. In fact, tell us a story in 12 words exactly.

The ABC’s of our Keep It Short and Simple 12-word contest can be explained in, well, 12-words: 

Articulate a story or concept with
Brevity in an interesting
Creative way.

Even small words count (we believe in the power of the little guys) and contractions count as one word (because working together makes us better).

This is a chance to challenge yourself to try something a little different and have some fun doing it!
