Let your teacher know if you would like to participate, and we’ll get your class set up.

Update: September 2020 snippet is now live! Submission deadline is midnight EDT, September 23.

What is a “Street Snippet”?

New Yorkers hear Street Snippets every day. Walking down the sidewalk, we hear 2 seconds of someone on the phone, or 3 seconds of conversation from someone walking past, or a short snippet of an loud argument floating out a third floor window. That’s a Street Snippet. They can happen anywhere… short bursts of private conversations heard on the streets and subways of New York City.

Each one of these overheard snippets is a short story just waiting to get out. That’s where you come in…

How to Play “Street Snippets”

In the second week of each month, a new Street Snippet will be published on The game is to write a short story from that snippet. The story must start with the snippet. There is no limit to the length of your story. Any genre is acceptable. You may enter multiple stories each month.

How to Submit Your Story

Go to during the second week of the month. A snippet for that month will be posted. Write your story, starting it with that month’s Street Snippet, and paste it into the story form at the bottom of the announcement page. Make it easy to read by including paragraph breaks and correct punctuation. Your story will be reviewed before being published, so don’t be surprised if it doesn’t show up immediately when you post it.

How the Monthly Winners is Selected

After the Street Snippet is posted for the month, you will have 10 days to submit your story. All stories submitted are published on the site. A committee reviews the entries and selects three stories to receive a “Certificate of Recognition”.

The Final Read-Off

At the end of the school year, there will be a final Read-Off in the auditorium at your school. Each of the monthly winners will read their story to the entire school. Don’t worry. If you’re one of the finalists and you’re terrified of speaking in front of 300 raving fans, we’ll find someone to read it for you.

Each of the participants in the Read-Off will receive an honorary gift card, while the winner will receive the, yet to be decided, grand prize.

You Are an Author

Now comes the exciting part. At the conclusion of the year, all stories published will be printed in a hard copy book, available on Amazon! Each published author will receive a free copy of the book. If you submit 6 or more stories during the year, you will have your own chapter in the book, dedicated to your stories.

It’s time to get started. We’re excited to have you with us this year, and look forward to reading your stories.
