ShoStoWriMo at GRRL

To celebrate Short Story Writing Month, the Great River Regional Library (GRRL) sought  short, short stories of 32 words or less inspired by this historical photograph from the Minnesota Digital Library.

Patrons were asked, “What’s the story here?” and then encouraged to download the submission form to write a short, short story.¬† Writers could submit their short story online or in person at any GRRL between November 15 to December 15, 2014.

Stories were posted on the library’s website or in local branch library locations during last year’s Winter Reading Program in January and February, 2015.
