Great River Short Story Challenge

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but how about 33? During Short Story Writing Month, ShoStoWriMo, give us your best short short story based on this picture from the Stearns History Museum. GRRL is made up of 33 libraries, so 33 seems the perfect number of words to give us your best take on this historical photo. Paper submission forms are also available for you to submit in person at any GRRL locations. Submit your story between December 1-31, 2023.
