Your Best Summer Tale Wins A Stay At The Standard Miami
Now that summer is unofficially over, no doubt you have some stories to tell from romantic picnics and breezy getaways to bangin' beach barbeques. Perhaps there was a little summer lovin' that had an interesting twist or ended with a broken heart? Either way, now is the time to share that tale for all to read, in particular, the folks over at The Standard Miami who'll reward the best story with a free stay!
The Standard wants to read your Summer themed stories and they're making a contest out of it. For those of you that have a knack for putting your feelings down on paper, or have dreams to be published, now is your chance. Just make it short, as the limit is 1000 words. Goes without saying, but it has to be about the hot season, summer!
The grand prize winner can see their story for themselves at The Standard Miami for 3 nights during the Miami Book Fair in November. If you'd rather stay at the LA or NYC properties, you can opt for that too, but we think Miami, the book fair, and beautiful weather is the better deal.
The top 5 stories will be published in The Standard's very own in-room compendium for guests to read, not to mention on the hotel's website. The stories will also be displayed at the designer eyeglass boutique, Warby Parker's, Showroom HQ in New York, and the 'Readeries' in Miami and LA. The best five authors will win a subscription to literary mag, The Paris Review.
So, if you feel like you have Hemingway in your heart, submit your story here. Just make sure it's original and not published anywhere else, since that would be, like, cheating. Not cool.
The rest of the rules are here.
