Hello writing friends. It’s contest time again. We are looking for flash fiction stories under 1000 words, and we’re only accepting the first 30 (thirty) entries. So get your story in right away if you want to be counted. This contest starts TODAY, October 1, 2014.
This is a NO FEE contest. Check your spelling and grammar. The deadline is: October 31, 2014. We won’t take anything after that date. The judging will be done in November and we’ll let the winners know by the end of November. Your story will be posted on Patricia Crandall’s blog for one month. It will stay published on Linda Barnett-Johnson’s blog, unless asked to be removed. It will also be featured on the home page of Long Story Short e-zine. Please put ‘CONTEST’ in the subject line. Please copy and paste onto the body of the email. DON’T SEND AN ATTACHMENT. THEY WON’T BE OPENED.
Previously published work acceptable if you have rights and it has not been published since a three year period.
Here’s what is being given away by Patricia Crandall, author of The Dog Men, Pat’s Collectibles and winner of several short story submissions.
