Prompt: Faces on the Train

Last week I asked about a very introspective topic, after all, who knows us better than ourselves?  This week we’re going to flip that on its head and talk about strangers.  Who is that person across from you on the train?  Where did they come from?  Where are they going?  Craft a story about one of the people in the photographs above, or mix and match several characters in any of them.  No genre limitations.


Word limit: 300.

Schedule: Submissions accepted from 9:00am (EST) on Monday, through 5:00pm (EST) on Friday of any given week. The winning entry will be posted the following Tuesday.

Prize: Winners will receive publication on this blog and a bio that links back to the site(s) of their choosing.  This contest is non-paying.

Specifics: Please put MFM-Submission-[This week’s PROMPT]-[Your TITLE] in your subject line.  For example: MFM-Submission-Self Portraits-Me, Myself & I

Attach your entry as a .doc file or .docx  DO NOT include your name anywhere on your submission or file name as all entries will be read blind.  DO NOT send more than one entry per week.  No explicit or graphic content please.

Please do include a brief cover letter with a short bio written as you would like it to appear on the site.  Do include links to your blog, twitter, or however else you would like to promote yourself.
