NEWS: November Contest

Ah, November, that wonderful time of year when the Christmas products and ads start popping up everywhere (already!), when winter is in the air, when men and boys let their facial hair grow to raise money and awareness to fight prostate cancer.

We’re going to have a contest themed on one of these things. Any guesses which one?

Yup: moustaches!

The Moustache Memoirs contest will be open to your entries from November 1, 2014, until November 22, 2014. All submitted stories must be related to the theme of “moustache” in some way. Take the theme whatever direction seems best to you!

The best 10 submitted stories will be posted to the site during the week of November 24 to 28, 2014, at the rate of two stories per day.


The best story from all of the entries, as judged by editor Tim Sevenhuysen, will be posted as the second story of the day on Friday, November 28, and will also be marked as the Story of the Week for that week. The author of this story will receive a $15 Amazon gift card!

The story that wins the contest will also be eligible for selection as Story of the Month. (That means your story could win you up to $25 in total!)


  • To be eligible for this contest, stories must be received between November 1, 2014, and November 22, 2014.
