All Tomorrow’s Barbie’s Award

Writing Prompt

Team up with another writer and create a dual narrative story about dolls and outdoor cooking. Your story should be split into at least two separate structures with reflections between each narrative. They don’t have to be about the same time, place or characters (though they can be) but the reader should be able to find relationships and meaning in the dualistic nature of the story.

Entry Format

Note:Only one author has to submit the story.



A cover image is no longer a prerequisite, but we still love them. All cover images must be in 4:3 format landscape (not portrait). Most photo editing programs give you that option. If you’re using your phone, try the Snapseed app, it has lots of cool features as well. Another recommendation is Pixlr.

If including a cover image, ensure that you own the rights to that image or that you have permission, or that the image carries a free license. Make the filename of the image the name of your story and include a backlink to the source in the body text at the bottom of your story.
