The winning entry, runners up, and judges comments, are all on this page


The 100 Word Tale challenge will open again for entries in June 2024, Once again the challenge is to produce a Tale in 100 words, such as Wilson would have recognised.  A complete miniature story, but that may be any genre, set in any time and any place.  Wilson knew about trains and ships, but not about cell phones, lasers, space travel, or even aircraft.  
What makes a good story that gets related, one to anther in the cold evenings of winter, or across the bar room table?  You (and the judges) will decide.
