Compose a piece of fiction that deals with the theme of ‘first days’
It could be the first day on the job, or on a holiday (to Venus), or it could be the first day of a new start in life, or maybe just life itself.
Lately we’ve been getting LOTS of submissions. In an effort to make curating the list easier, we are looking for stories that are active, include dialogue and characterisation.
Stream of conciousness, internal monologues and walls of description are not ideal.
