Editor's Challenge

The Editor's Challenge returns! Your prompt is Clint Weathers' photo, Roberta. What does she inspire you to write in under 250 words? Is she your great-aunt Ethel? Or is she the unassuming madame of a quiet Saint Paul bordello? Or is she the face behind Check out Roberta and tell us her story.



In the cover letter, please provide your Metropolitan State University Status, your name as you would like it listed, a 75-word bio written in third-person, and the genre(s) of the piece(s) you submit.

All artwork must be in .jpg format, include a title, and be at least 800x600 pixels.

Poorly copyedited writing, no matter how brilliant or creative, often gets rejected. So please be sure all writing is thoroughly copyedited.
