The Animal Tales Fiction Writing Project is an exercise in both empathy and imagination, a challenge designed to force authors to look at the world through foreign eyes - in this case, the eyes of an animal.  To ensure variety we are permitting only one story for each animal, illustrated by the images on the left side of the icons below.  This means if you see a story written from the perspective of a cat, you will not find another story from a cat's perspective in this Writing Project.

All members and authors are invited to participate in this Writing Project.  If you think you would like to take part, please click on the "Participate" link in the banner above, where you will find the rules related to this Writing Project, a more in-depth explanation of what is expected of participating authors, and the submission form you are required to use when submitting your story to The Authors Haunt.
