Share Your Short Story – August 2019

If you’re a blogger who likes to write short fiction or poetry, here’s a great opportunity. You’ll also find an excerpt from Stevie’s novel. Enjoy and good luck.

Stevie Turner

Authors can share a link to their short stories (less than 2000 words please) or poetry, and it won’t cost you a penny! The deadline is 31st August. Stories or poems can be on any subject, but please keep them reasonably family friendly – nothing too graphic!  On 1st September I will pick a winner and a runner up and share the links to the stories on my website, MeWe and Twitter pages. The winner also has the choice of their story being included in an anthology of winners that I will compile when I have enough stories.

Please ensure that you add the link to your story to August’s submission page and not any previous month, or it may be missed.

I look forward to reading your efforts. The winners can use these laurels below to add to their story:

A Canine Perspective of Today’s Telephone

by guest blogger and resident guide dog Willow

Due to Alice’s being very, very busy with trying to learn how to use her new, pink i-phone, I have graciously agreed to be a guest blogger/dogger for WORDWALK this Wednesday, July 24, 2019.  Thank you, Alice, for the PUPportunity; and thanks to all of you WORDWALK readers for your attention on this lovely summer day.

First, I must tell you that I have been hearing a lot about “fingerprints.”  A-PUP-ently, the way Alice has to start this incredible telephone is with a fingerprint.  Trying to do so has been problematic.  I do want to help; but in the settings menu, we find no option for a PAWPRINT.  Well, this is not my idea of accessible!  After all, I, as a British Black Labrador, have smaller paws than most Labs.

Furthermore, Alice keeps telling somebody called…
