The winner of this contest will be the story or poem which best tells the story of a current event. It can be about any event in the last few years: the War in Iraq, the genocide in Darfur, climate change, the hidden world of North Korea, the increasingly leftist mood of Latin America, the plight of an illegal immigrant about to be deported, or any event you think we need to know more about.

As with all writing, we want to see the human side. We don't want any rants against Bush or conspiracy theories about government agencies. What we want is to get a glimpse into the lives of people effected by the events of our day. The soldiers fighting in Iraq, the citizens within North Korea, the Janjaweed leaders carrying out the genocide in Darfur.

Five finalists will be chosen by me. The winner will be voted on by you, the readers. The story or poem with the most votes will win the author $100.00. Any type of literature can be submitted at any length (note, however, that longer pieces must be interesting reads throughout).

Good luck, and here's to sharing the world's untold stories.
