Show me how it's done - short stories about 'community'  April 22, 2016 - May 4, 2016

Reading and Deliberating


Hello everyone!
I am studying Creative and Digital Media at college, and I have been asked to give a presentation about 'online communities'.
I believe that all of us lovely lot on WritersCafe form a very interesting and creative community, and to help get my point across, I'm enlisting your help!
I would like to ask you all to submit a short story, about 'community'.
Whether it's a story about fitting in/not fitting in, a story about where you can find 'communities' or an observation of the different meanings of 'community', and the different ways and places it can be found.
To be clear, I am not asking for essays, make it interesting and fun, be imaginative!
As a thank you for your help I will be offering a $10 prize to the author of the story that I like the best - and I can only apologise that I am poor, and can't afford to pay you all!
Thank you all in advance, and I look forward to some weekend reading! :)
