The Thin Threads™ Story Collection Contest

Thin Thread™ - The Moment that Made the Difference.

Kiwi Publishing invites you to contribute a true story, article, or anecdote that will bring hope and happiness to all those who realize the possibility in each moment, and the unseen miracles that arise from overcoming what seem like setbacks. By sharing special moments, from surprising, loving and inspiring to traumatic, these stories will touch people around the world.

Topics will include: Thin Threads™ of: Survival, Romance, Opportunity, Sport Success, Courage, Leadership & Innovation, Forgiveness, Motherhood, Fatherhood, Patriotism, Business Success and any other story that offers hope from a Thin Thread™ moment.

We're looking for inspirational, true stories, 1200 words or less, that will make readers laugh, cry, or sigh. Stories should be positive, universal, and non-controversial. The "point" or "message" should be evident without preaching. No essays, commentaries, tributes, philosophical or biographical pieces will be accepted.

Each story must contain the following elements:

1. Be Real - non fiction

2. Capture the essence of a thin thread event

3. Evoke an emotion from the reader
