Microcosms 71

The weekend approaches… Celebrate with Microcosms 71.

Today – 12-MAY – is the birthday of one of the most important composers of 20th-century popular music: songwriter, record producer, pianist and singer, Burt Bacharach. He has composed hundreds of songs from the 1950s throught the 1980s and beyond, winning 6 Grammy Awards and 3 Academy Awards. His songs have been recorded by over 1000 different artists.

To simplify things this week, we have unplugged the slot machine.

Instead, go to Wikipedia’s page List of songs written by Burt Bacharach. Choose one of the  song titles as a prompt for your story; but, to avoid potential confusion, please DON’T use it as the title of your entry. You can select your own genre from the many used throughout the last 70 weeks of Microcosms.



(If YOU have an idea for a future contest and would like to be guest host, please contact us.)


*** HEY! Remember to include which song title and genre you are using AND a title for your entry ***


Judging this week is Microcosms 70 Judge’s Pick, Sian Brighal.

All submissions should be a maximum of 300 words in length. You have until midnight, New York time (EDT) to submit.

*** If you are new to Microcosms, remember to check out the full submission guidelines. ***

All being well, results will be posted on Monday.
