Plotto: The Master Contest of All Plots – Student Edition – Week 3

Calling all undergrad and graduate writers (no matter your major) —we want you!

THE RULES:

Every Wednesday we post a prompt from William Wallace Cook’s classic how to manual Plotto: The Master Book of All Plots. Use the prompt below to write your own original 500 word (or fewer) story.

In the book, {A}= a male protagonist. {B}= a female protagonist but for our purposes, feel free to write from the point of view of any gender.

Mini-Plottos, 500 words or fewer, must be submitted by the following Monday at 5:00pm PST. Send to: theopenbar@tinhouse.com. Please include a brief author bio (including where you go to school) with your entry (which should be pasted into the body of the email).

The Week’s Prompt:

{A}, unable to explain events of a seemingly supernatural nature, has a
feeling that a ghostly visitor is at work

THE RICHES:

Winners will be announced each Wednesday and will receive a hardcover copy of Plotto, online publication on the Tin House Blog, and be entered in the Final Master Plot Challenge.

*Tin House is now accepting flash fiction (under 1,000 words) for FLASH FRIDAYS. Please send to theopenbar@tinhouse.com with FLASH FRIDAY as your subject line.
