If you’re between the ages of 18 and 30, we hope you’ll consider entering the Choice Out Loud Short Story Contest. Not only is this a great way to share a pro-choice story, your submission will be reviewed by our amazing judges and you could win one of our great cash prizes!
Grand Prize: $2,000
Judges’ Choice: $1,000
People’s Choice: $1,000
HOW TO ENTER: Write a story, 500 words or less, that features an unplanned pregnancy.
It can be fiction, non-fiction or somewhere in between – how the story is told is up to you. Choice is a critical thread that connects so much of our lives. We encourage you to think about the diverse reality of life in America, the circumstances that lead to an unintended pregnancy, the different choices women and men make when faced with this situation, and how a person’s decision may influence their future.
You should feel free to use inspirations from your own life or community. Write from the heart.
