#GWStoriesEverywhere Contest

Event Image

Each month we invite you to share a very short story for a chance to win a free class. Your story must be no longer than 25 words, will be inspired by what you see, know, or do, and should relate in some way to the monthly theme. Stories can be true or made up. 

July's theme is “Weary traveler.”
