We Want Your Political Fiction


In the magazine this week, seven writers imagine moments in the lives of political figures, from Barack Obama to Rod Blagojevich. But we know that you, the readers, are more than capable of dreaming up some fictional scenarios of your own. So we want you to join in on the fun by sending us your own short stories — or movie treatments, or miniature one-act plays, or whatever format you desire — about a politician of your choosing. We’ll publish them online all week and reward the best three with prizes like a night at Washington, D.C.’s Mayflower Hotel and dinner at Blue Hill. Check out all the guidelines here, and then get started. Based on your creativity in the comments section, we expect big things from some of you.
