Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World

Song of the Day: Fast Car by Tracy Chapman

   Hello all! I got a chance to attend the Florida Writers Conference this weekend and it was GREAT! There's something to be said about being around "My People!" I met so many wonderful writers, and in the coming weeks I'll be posting what I learned in the workshops. In the meantime, here's another round of opportunities. And please forgive me, but I only have a short list of contests today. I've got a million things going on this week and I'm sick! You understand right?

Contests:


1. Lucid Hills Spring Short Story Contest:

   They are looking for short shorts, short stories, essays, memoirs, photo essays, graphic stories, all forms of literary non-fiction, and excerpts from longer works of both fiction and non-fiction.

Ten finalists will also be chosen and awarded $25 each. The entry fee is $15 and the contest deadline is December 31, 2010. Visit the website for official rules.

Don't forget about the Black Fox Literary Magazine's fiction contest going on now! I'll probably remind you about this until the deadline (Hey, I have to look out for my own!). Good luck and Happy Writing!
