Here's a novel idea for a writing competition— you're given the opening and closing lines from one of three classic works and you write the rest! Hence the name the Literary Taxidermy Short Story Competition.

From the Literary Taxidermy Website:

The Literary Taxidermy Short Story Competition is open to all. To enter, writers must provide an original story of up to 3000 words in any genre.

The twist: We provide your opening and closing lines chosen from a classic work of literature. You provide the rest. You must write your own short story that starts and ends with the same opening and closing lines as one of these three classic works.

Three winning stories will be selected, for a total prize of US $1,500.

In addition, winners and runners-up will be published by Regulus Press in a forthcoming 2018 Anthology of Literary Taxidermy.

The competition deadline is 12pm PST Monday 4 June 2018.
