Invisible Publishing and Sarah Selecky Writing school have joined forces to produce print editions of the wildly popular Little Bird Stories anthologies. The Little Bird Writing Contest is an international contest for innovative, emerging short fiction writers. The contest opens each spring when the birds come back and showcases the excellent stories that come from Sarah Selecky Writing School. And the anthology collects the top three stories in one perfect, punchy volume.
The contest prompts: Write a scene that uses layers and layers of clichés intentionally. Write a scene that starts with the line, “Don’t you want to look sophisticated and elegant?” Write a scene about something that falls and breaks. Write about peeling a potato for at least one page.
Selected by Neil Smith.

Proceeds from anthology sales go towards the Pelee Island Bird Observatory and the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory to help protect the real little birds out there.
