The Mollie Savage Memorial Writing Contest

The Mollie Savage Memorial Writing Contest (formerly Three Cheers and a Tiger) is a 48-hour short story writing contest. The contest was renamed in 2021 in honor of Mollie Savage, the winner of the inaugural Three Cheers and a Tiger contest in 2001. Mollie later became an editor at Toasted Cheese. She passed away in 2013.

The Savage Writing Contest runs twice a year, on the weekends closest to March 21 and September 21. All entries must be composed within the contest time frame, and adhere to the topic and word range announced at the contest start.
