Retreat West Microfiction, November 2022

The Retreat West Microfiction competition is great fun!

Early in the month a prompt is given and submissions are invited with a one week submission window. The pieces must be exactly 100 words.

In November, the prompt was 'Shine.' I encouraged the writers, many who are beginning their writing journey, in the writing class I co-facilitate with my great friend Carolann Copland in Knocklyon Adult Education to submit to the competition and was thrilled so many of them took up the challenge.

I was lucky enough to win the People's Prize with my piece 'I Polished All Our Shoes on Saturday Evenings.'

Read it and the other winners on the website.
