I'll take on any contest, even poetry. But if it's poetry you'll probably get something about a man from Nantucket.
Would that man have a bucket?

Well, poetry is not my strong suit and I have some short stories I would like to share, but since poetry won they will have to wait. Where do I submit my entry?

I see now the poll is over. If I had seen this, my vote will be for a novella 😊

I would love to participate in a short story contest! I think it would be a hoot and a half to see what people can do, and it would open the doors for a ton of constructive criticism.

Sounds like a blast!
