Fiction Writing Contests - 1st Place $150

What do we mean by “Amazing Story," you ask? A story that grabs us by the throat, demanding we pay attention. A story that tugs at our heartstrings. Beautiful words with a lyrical quality. A well-told tale, showing the author is a master storyteller. These are some of the elements we're looking for in an Amazing Story.
