You may be wondering: “What the heck is a drabble?” A drabble is a fiction story exactly 100 words long. Laurier launched the 100 Words Drabble Contest today to celebrate the university’s 100th anniversary.
The contest is open to anyone and has great prizes, including a Kobo e-Reader, Chapters gift certificates and the opportunity to become a published writer.
Each submission must explore one of the following topics: “inspiration,” “purpose” or “leadership.” Drabbles are fiction, however, so be creative and have fun.
