Not Blessed Contest: Deadline April 30

In Not Blessed a story is told not once, but twenty-eight times in twenty-eight shifting versions. Twenty-eight because author Harold Abramowitz initially drafted a version of the story every day for twenty-eight days in February.

In wild celebration of Not Blessed, and in the spirit of collective story-telling, Les Figues Press is hosting a twenty-eight day Not Blessed A Little Story Contest.

We invite you to create your own version of the book's recurring story: destroy, deconstruct, build-up, skew, subvert, or whatever else you would like to do to contribute to this webbed work. Read the following excerpt from Not Blessed, meet the players and retell the story...again, as your own.
