I stole it and I’m glad I did.
That’s right. Our annual Jive writing contest is going unabashedly criminal. This year, we’re asking you for a 400 words-or-less piece of fiction themed around this shameless declaration. Stolen cars, stolen hearts, stolen files, stolen kisses, stolen ideas… we want to read what your wily imagination puts forth. Just make sure that your story at some point includes the phrase “I stole it and I’m glad I did.”
Our favorite little thieving Jive entries will be published in our Fall Lit issue, and we’ll have a party and reading with the winners that very night, Oct. 19, at Copperfield’s Books in Sebastopol at 6pm.
Send us your entries to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 5pm.
