One Page Stories

One page stories (not to be confused with one page novels) are quick quotidian catalysts. We’ve all experienced a powerful story that changed our lives – whether it’s a fiction that takes us out of ourself, or the internal monologue we use to realise our own experiences…

If you had just one page to inspire, influence, motivate, or move someone, to offer them a solution, or a new perspective, to improve their mood or their circumstances… what would you write?

The 7-day writing challenges are about writing more, and finishing fast, whereas the one page story challenge really requires you to focus in on the idea and to think about your audience.
