Ten Thousand Stories, Eighty Thousand Words
In this final week, we have been inspired by the quality and the number of stories submitted from people across the globe, from all walks of life, all ages, all backgrounds and the response has exceeded all our expectations.
As of Monday morning, we’re well past 9,000 entries and we can’t help notice there is a nice round number that we’re tantalisingly close to.
Can you help us hit 10,000 entries?

And, if yours is selected as our official 10,000th entry, your story will treated to a unique prize: an entire evening of #8WordStory will be devoted to you, just you.
From 5:00pm to 10:00pm on Saturday 25th November, our #8WordStory billboards around South-East Queensland will feature just one story and one story alone.
It could be yours.
