WOLVES Part 3: Love

Writing Prompt

We live or die by the pack, but we come into this world, and leave it, alone. As we reach the penultimate point in this four part saga it’s time to ramp up to conflict between self and other, society and the individual, what we mind, and what matters.

Is love what keeps us together, or what will ultimately tear us apart?

Here’s what we want to see in Part 3.

  • A rise in tension between what is good for one and good for many.
  • A sudden windfall
  • A false dichotomy
  • An opportunity to bare one’s teeth or bare one’s soul.

Good luck lupines!


Keep the path your Wolves still travel.

Entry Format



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.
