Most people call me Mike. I'm a constant reader of Mr. King's work from high school to the 32 I am now. It's my first time posting to a site like this because like most things on the internet, I find it hard to trust websites. This one seems legitimate and the moderators appear to be pretty active so I feel its time to throw caution to the wind.

I want to start with a few questions.

Does the assignment Mr. King gave in his book "On Writing" still get looked at if you send it in?

This one is a little obscure but, Is he serious about the airport ladies room story? Is there any post of the 90 pages he talked about writing?

Thank you for your time,

Mike

Welcome to the Board!

Unfortunately, we no longer are accepting submissions for the On Writing exercise.

Stephen did get an idea from a woman in England that he really liked for the ladies room story but to the best of my knowledge, he hasn't actually written that one yet. He did tell me he'd written four stories in the past few months, though, so perhaps that's one of them.

Hi Mike, and welcome! You can send your story to me, as Mr. King is no longer accepting submissions. I usually type them out, sign my name to them, and sell them on the short story black market on the 'dark web'. Well it's not really dark, sort of like twilight. :)
Well if its like twilight then it'll be perfectly safe. There was never any real danger in that place ; )

Wow thank you for the prompt response and thank you all for the warm welcome :D.

Does this site ever hold writing contest or anything similar?
We don't do writing contests as that could get into dangerous territory with the policy Steve's attorney wants us to maintain about not posting original writing. We do have an annual Halloween story that is a collaborative project, though. That doesn't skirt the rules because it is a collaboration written by several of the Board members who volunteer to participate.
