Hello AWers. : ) After reviewing the forum rules this seems like the right place to post this notice, but this is my first post here so if I've made any mistakes I apologize.

Anyway, about the contest! Creative Writers' Circle is a website that's dedicated to inspiring and rewarding creative writers. We do this by providing writing prompts on our website and holding contests to find the best prompt-based short stories. Entry is free, open to anyone and we offer great prizes to the winners. Our current contest has prizes for first through third place that amount to $160 total in cash and gift certificates. We often have great sponsors for our contests, and this contest's sponsor is a company called Serenity Sales. Serenity Sales specializes in retro mystery-novel dust jacket art prints and items, and the winners can use their Serenity Sales gift certificates to purchase such items from their store - they're really cool!

So if you'd like a fun challenge to get your creative juices flowing and to compete for some cash and prizes while you're at it, go ahead and check out the prompt on our website and get writing!
