Past Loves Day Story Contest
Few are aware of a new opportunity to acknowledge what lingers in their hearts. To bring
awareness of PAST LOVES DAY, SEPTEMBER 17, to a wider world, Spruce Mountain Press is
sponsoring its 2nd annual Past Loves Day Story Contest.
Write a true story of a former sweetheart, in no more than 700 words. Nearly everyone has
such a story. So tell us about your earlier love, someone whose memory brings a smile or
a tear, or both. Did that woman or man change your life? How did that experience affect
the rest of your life. Your story may be heart-warming or humorous. Just tell it as if you
were talking to a good friend.
No entry fee.
First Prize: $100
Second Prize: $75
Third Prize: $50
All winners and Honorable Mentions will receive a copy of If Only I Could Tell You: Where
Past Loves and Current Intimacy Meet, by Kate Harper and Leon Marasco
