Regular readers of the Editor’s Blog might remember our Six-Word Story contest for Significant Objects: the online project that pairs cheap thrift store finds with notable writers who then create a fictional back story to be posted alongside that item in an eBay charity auction.
Well Significant Objects is back with another round of objects and writers with the proceeds this time around going to 826 National, the nonprofit that aims to assist young people with an interest in creative and expository writing. They’re about halfway through the current round of auctions, with lots of great new stories (including Rabbit Candle by the great Neil LaBute) and tons of great writers still to contribute. So why not head over and see what stories and objects are up for grabs? In addition to winning a one of a kind prize, as an added bonus you’ll also be supporting a really great cause and helping the storytellers of tomorrow.
