The Challenge and the Prizes:
Here’s how the contest works. Using the photograph above for inspiration, compose a short fiction (or poetry) piece of no more than 250 words in any genre or style. Send your entry to me by email at jevanswriter at yahoo dot com before 10:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 28th (Eastern Time, United States). I’d prefer attachments formatted in Microsoft Word (please see the format request below), but if you have something more exotic, you can paste the text into the body of an email (no docx formats, please). Forties Club entries will be posted and indexed.
Now for the goodies. Thanks to an anonymous donor who loves writing, the prizes have been PUMPED! Serious money is up for grabs:
1st Place: $100 Amazon gift certificate and a signed copy of THE TAVERNIER STONES
2nd Place: $50 Amazon gift certificate
3rd Place: $35 Amazon gift certificate
4th Place: $30 Amazon gift certificate
5th Place: $20 Amazon gift certificate
Readers’ Choice Award: $40 Amazon Gift certificate and a signed copy of the THE TAVERNIER STONES
$15 Night Owl Prize (chosen at random from the entries not posted)
So, yeah, pretty epic. I’ve entered this contest many times, with varying degrees of success, but had fun every time. You can read my entry from the previous contest here. I was particularly proud of that one.
When I get my entry for the current contest finished, I’ll post it on the blog. As always, let me know if you enter. I’d love to read it.
