#SOOP on Monday: Top 20 Short Story & Book Ideas for April 17, 2023

A new top 20 means a new opportunity to present you with the most popular stories at SOOP.

We want to take advantage of this opportunity to celebrate these writers’ performances as they have kept displaying why they deserve to be published. Keep up the good work, folks!

Remember that your story must gather at least 50 votes to become eligible for cash prizes and a publishing contract.

Furthermore, SOOP is conducting a weekly draw to incentivize support from fans, friends, and short story lovers in which they can win a free book of their choice by voting for any Book Ideas, Short Story Ideas, or Anthology Ideas posted on our website.

Anyone can play an essential role in the publishing journey of these writers, and they might be one vote away from the finish line. So, without further ado, let’s get them published together!
