Great storytellers are read, not seen. They let their characters do the talking and the listening and the getting in and out of trouble. Still, no law says they can't make a cameo appearance. Are you ready for your close-up? Give us a short story in which you, the author, are directly involved. You may be the main character or a minor character but—and here's the catch—you may not use First Person narrative. That means no "I" or "me." For this story, you are looking at yourself from the outside.
ENTRY FEE: None
PRIZE: $100, publication in The VERB, and a signed copy of
