Hello lovely Balderans! If you're on the discord, you'll know me as Sarah. I'm excited to announce a Short Story Contest! It's time to get creative and show off your writing skills!

Writing Prompt

Short stories must follow this writing prompt: Following World War III, all the nations of the world agree to 50 years of strict isolation from one another in order to prevent additional conflicts. 50 years later, the United States comes out of exile only to learn that no one else actually went into isolation.
