In a world full of temptations, DESIRE tempts the senses and beckons from afar.

So write us a story about desire in any of its myriad forms.

You have 750 words to spellbind us. Let your imagination loose.

Think apple, money, love, envy, hunger, hope… desire can take any enticing form. We look forward to the form it takes in your imagination.

Nine finalists will receive a virtual ribbon to display wherever they like.

If your story wins the Popular Vote* or the Editors’ Choice, you’ll receive a $25 e-gift certificate and of course’s fabulous virtual ribbon to share with the world.

* A note on how the Popular Vote works. The story that garners the most numerical votes wins this category. The number of stars a story receives is simply an indication of how readers (really) felt about it. Popular and best are not always equal.
