June Writing Challenge

Welcome, Germies, to this month’s writing challenge! This challenge will begin today and will end June 30th. However, you are welcome to come back anytime to complete the challenge and submit it below in the comments section. We will pick a few of our favorites that are submitted during this month, though, and they will be featured in our Lit section.

Writing Challenge:

–Write a 100-word story. It must be 100 words exactly, no more and no less. This does not include the title.

  • There must be a setting.
  • There must be at least one character.
  • There must be some conflict. (man vs. man; man vs. self; man vs. nature)

Optional Inspiration: June’s book of the month is The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, so think of mischief, friendship, spirited adventures, and fierce independence.


Submitting for this challenge is easy. Simply email your story to submit@germmagazine.com. Put “June Writing Challenge” as the subject of your email, and include your name, age, and country in the body of your message. If you have any questions, or if you’re having problems submitting, feel free to email me at brianabailey@germmagazine.com.

Everyone who completes the challenge will be responded to and informed as to whether or not their piece has been chosen to be featured. Since the deadline for this challenge is June 30th, do not expect an email from us until the beginning of July.
