Matchbook Story Contest


Thank you to everyone who participated in our first ever Matchbook Story Contest! The requirements for submission were that a story must be short enough to fit on the inside of a matchbook cover: approximately 90 words or less.  Not an easy task, but we had hundreds of entries, demonstrating the amazing creativity in our San Diego community (and beyond--we had several authors from around the country as well).

Congratulations to our 2017 winner: Tara Gilboy! Pick up your very own matchbook online or in the Shop.

We are already looking forward to what 2018 will hold--check back next fall for information on our Second Annual Matchbook Short Story Contest.
