The possibilities are endless when it comes to summer time. With so many choices on how to spend the sunny days, we are left to wonder: what does the perfect summer day look like? Do you start your mornings with a relaxing float in the pool before all the neighborhood kids wake up and make a mad dash for the deep end? Watch the humming birds zip between the feeders over lunch? Impromptu barbeque at the neighbors for dinner?

In 500 words or less, tell us about your perfect summer day. Submit your piece here

Every month we host a new contest with prizes including a $200 honorarium and an invitation to read at a Library event. One winner will be selected from submissions of poetry, short fiction, and essays. See previous winners, or read more about the guidelines and enter your original works »
