'The Candles' is the weekly short story prompt for Wednesday, October 12, 2022. Submission window will close October 27, 2022.
Although you're welcome to follow where inspiration takes you, IronAge Media is taking short story submissions based off this image, one to five thousand words. Please send a link to your completed creation via email and I will add it below this. Note that at this time you will need to host your content yourself, via Substack or similar. A new prompt will be posted every Wednesday, and this prompt will stop accumulating submissions after two weeks. After a month of prompts, and submissions, an editor's pick and popular choice will each be selected for a full article, along with the option of posting the full story on the site.
