Mr. Pish, the Outdoor Learning & Literacy Pup, Turns 21

Mr PishToday is Mr. Pish’s birthday. The “Traveling Terrier” was a champion of childhood literacy and outdoor awareness. He was also the mascot of Indies Unlimited.

Though he passed away at the ripe old age of 16, his legacy lives on through his many books and even a fun companion app.

His long-time human companion, best friend, and dedicated biographer/transcriptionist is our administrator, K.S. Brooks. Mr. Pish left her a wealth of material with which to carry on with his work in helping children love reading, nature, history, and geography.

We celebrate his life and achievements today. If you’d like to drop by any of Mr. Pish’s social media channels and wish him a happy birthday, or give him a follow or a like, your gesture would be greatly appreciated.

First, there will be a limit on how many times an author can win the challenge each month. Authors are welcome to enter every week for the Editors’ Choice award, but will only be eligible to win the popular vote once each month. Second, no corrections will be made to flash fiction entries once they have been submitted. Make sure you have proofread your entry. Let it sit overnight, and look at it again the next day with fresh eyes. Please see the updated rules in detail below – they are listed in italics. All the other rules and scheduling remain unchanged.
