Short Story -
The story may deal with a spiritual or historical personality, theme, or idea. The writer must stay within the bounds of moral and acceptable subject matter. The personalities may be of any era. The story may be, but is not limited to, fantasy, mystery, or comedy. It may also be true to life. A story should have a clear beginning and end, and should contain a conflict and a climax. The work does not have to be spiritual in nature, but a spiritual application is encouraged if appropriate. Avoid potentially offensive themes.
