And for even shorter stories, we have the On the Premises Mini-Contest #6. These contests run regularly, and this one looks pretty interesting. The details aren't up on the website yet, but here's all the info you need:
Here's one I hope you'll enjoy.

One entry per author. Size: 25 to 75 words long.
Hyphenated words count as separate words: "jack-o-lantern"
