Ends on May 5, 2017

It's (roughly) the tenth anniversary of On The Premises magazine. We published our first issue in March 2007. However, we opened our website to the public in October 2006 and first thought about starting the magazine in March 2006. So when, exactly, is our anniversary? We're not sure either but it gave us an idea.

For this mini-contest, show, tell, or evoke a complete story in no more than 50 words in which the idea of some kind of anniversary plays a part. Remember we value creativity so the most obvious ideas might not be the ones most likely to win (unless they are REALLY well done, because we care about quality, too). 

Deadline: Friday, May 5, 2017, 11:59 PM Eastern US time, 

Length: Maximum of 50 words.

Hyphenated Words: If the hyphenated word is generally considered a single word, it counts as one word. (Like "twenty-five" or "jack-o-lantern.") Otherwise each part of the hyphenated word counts separately.

Prizes: $25 for first place, $15 for second, $10 for third. Honorable mentions get published but make no money.

One entry per author. There is no fee for entering this contest.
