The 7th 100-Word Short Story Smash is coming to Whidbey Island Center for the Arts (WICA) at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 30.

Writers interested in having their literary masterpieces dramatically read aloud to an admiring public by well-dressed rhetoricians in a stunning setting must follow these submission guidelines:

• All stories must be 100 words exactly; not 99 or less, or 101 plus. The title does not count in the 100-word total.

• Submissions must be submitted NO LATER THAN APRIL 23 to cspencer@whidbey.com so they can be printed and rehearsed by actors prior to the show. Edit your work or, better yet, have someone else edit it.

• Cash prizes will be awarded. You may submit up to two stories. Do not resubmit any story already read aloud in previous shows. In-house deities retain the right to accept or reject entries.

• If you’re unfamiliar with the 100-word genre/format, request guidelines from cspencer@whidbey.com.
