100 - 1500 words
Create a short story or poem about how you and your MC (or multiple MCs--I'm not your mama) meet in real life! Consider the location, how they react (or blend in) to their surroundings, what you'll say, etc... Have they been here all along? Or did they travel here through magical means? Are they aware of being a story character?
Brevity is ideal, but if you need more than one issue to convey the depth of your tale, please keep things under 4500 words/three issues.
Cheers, and Happy Writing! I can't wait to read what you guys come up with!
