There's a lot of value in losing yourself in another world. That feels especially true right now, when we're all stuck inside, preparing for the worst and hoping for the best. We have way more questions than answers, so why not make some stuff up?

This is where you come in.

We're launching a coronavirus flash-fiction contest. Stories should reflect Denver either under the effects of coronavirus or in its aftermath and should be between 500 and 1,500 words.

First-place will get $300, with two runners-up each getting $100, and winners will be determined by me, Esteban, Dave, Kevin and Donna. Stories could end up on denverite.com.

The deadline is March 27. Send your story to [email protected].
