“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

At the year end, our writing theme is all about ‘Endings’. Share your Endings story with us – get published and win goodies!

Endings are powerful. They hold the hint of happiness in the promise of new beginnings. And then there are those that can also break your heart with their note of finality. How do you view endings? Were there any particular endings that made you heave a sigh of relief and be glad that it was all over? Or were there endings which you desperately tried to avoid – but had to eventually give in, with a heavy heart, to the inevitable? Tell us about the noteworthy endings in your life and you might get published at Women’s Web.

Where to send: Send in your story to [email protected] with ‘Endings’ in the subject line, and your story as a word/txt attachment. Please avoid typing the story as inline text. Do include the name we should use if we publish it, and a brief introduction to yourself (2-3 lines) in the mail.

By when: Please send in your stories by December 23rd 2012. The 5 best stories will be published on Women’s Web the following week, i.e. December 24th onwards.

The 5 best entries will each win a Flipkart voucher worth Rs. 200.
