Submission Deadline: November 30th 2014

The Fountain invites all writers to its 2014 Essay Contest: You and Your 100-Year-Old Self. What would you say to yourself at that age? What would your 100-year-old self tell you back? Awards $2,750 in total.

The Fountain invites you to join  in celebrating its 100th issue.

  • Write an essay to yourself on your 100th birthday.
  • What would you say to yourself at that age?
  • What would your 100-year-old self tell you back?
  • Would it be a conversation of praise and/or regret?

Perhaps praise for the achievements in your career, but regrets about a lost family? Or warnings about the mistakes you made in your projected future or in your past; pitfalls you happened to be dragged into, temptations you could not resist; or celebrations for the good character you were able to display and sustain over a life; a precious life wasted or a life lived as it was meant to be.
