Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World

Song of the Day: "Superwoman" by Alicia Keys

Hello All! I am very busy this week reading, and researching, and writing. There just seems to be so much to do! It's like I can't stop reading. Perhaps I'm trying to do too much? I've got a short list today, but it should keep you busy in the meantime.
1. Literal Latte Poetry Prize
    The award is for $1,000 and publication in Literal Latte Magazine. You can 
    submit up to six poems of no more than 2,000 words each. The entry fee is
    $10 and the deadline is July 15, 2010. They also have a short shorts fiction
    contest, but the deadline is tomorrow! Visit their website for official rules and
    guidelines.

2. Gemini Magazine Flash Fiction Contest
    There will be a grand prize of $1,000 and the runner up will receive $100.
    They will also announce four honorable mentions. All six winners will be
    published in the October 2010 issue of Gemini Magazine. Both new and
    established writers are welcomed. Your work of fiction must be under
    1,000 words. The deadline for this contest is August 31, 2010. Click the

   Flash Fiction is something that interests me, and I've actually written some flash fiction pieces. Last time I checked, there wasn't a whole lot of information about flash fiction out there. Check out my blog next week, where I will explore the fantastic world of flash fiction! I'm excited to see what I can find!

   Hope these contests will give you motivation! Happy Writing!
