The IABD Presents network is launching our first ever short story contest!

This year's theme is "I met you before the fall of Rome." Yes, as you may have noticed, that is the first line of the song "It's All Been Done" by the Barenaked Ladies, which we thought appropriate for our network. We're looking for stories containing or centered around that line.


Thank you to all who contributed in our inaugural year! We received some really great entries, and are excited to choose which to share with you. The judges are pouring over them now, and we expect to announce the winners before the end of March! Check back here to find out who has been selected. (Winners will also be notified via email.)

If you wanted to enter but didn't, fear not! We will be doing this again next year. We'll announce the theme before the end of 2017.
