What can YOU say in six sentences?
Ten days left until the contest closes. This really is the final final reminder.
You are invited to enter an old-fashioned fiction-writing contest with some valuable prizes.
Here's what to do.
Write a short-short story (maximum 1,200 words) with a relationship at the core of the story. Any genre is fine as long as the main idea/area of conflict involves a relationship of some kind.
Print your manuscript in 12-point type, double-spaced. It must have a cover page with the title, your name, mailing address and phone number and total word count.
Your name should not appear anywhere else on the rest of the manuscript so that the judges will read blind manuscripts with no identifiers on them. One story per person, please.
Mail your manuscript to: Fiction Contest c/0 Smith and Handley, 3395 Cloverdale Road, Montgomery, Alabama, 36106, USA.
Deadline for entries is October 1, 2012. A three-judge panel of readers will select the winners.
First Prize: Should you decide to attend the 2013 House of Writers (HoW) gathering, all your meals (at home or in restaurants) will be paid for.
Second Prize: A $40 gift certificate to Dean's Beans, the finest fair trade coffee website.
Third Prize: $15 gift certificate to Divine Chocolate, a fair trade gourmet chocolate website.
Impartial judges will read entries after Oct. 1 and the winning stories will be posted on the wonderful MuDJoB website no later than Nov.1
Good luck and good writing!
