Two Sisters Writing and Publishing January 2018 Writing Contest

Psychotherapy Session(s). Write a short story that takes place entirely within one or many psychotherapy session(s). Never had the joy of working with a psychotherapist? No problem! Check out the American Psychological Association's article "Understanding psychotherapy and how it works." Is your story told from POV of the patient? The doc? Does it go back and forth? Is the doc suggesting art therapy? Play therapy? Haiku therapy? Delve into the dynamics. Do the patient and the doc have good chemistry? Is the patient actually a couple? A child? A pet--yes, that's a thing. 

Target length: 1,000 - 1,200 words.

Our contest will have one winner who will receive a prize of $75. The winning story will be featured on our website and will be included in the Second Annual Two Sisters Writing and Publishing Anthology of Fresh Writers, which we aim to publish in December 2018.
