Got Anything Sitting Around at 750 Words?

April 13, 2010 § 2 Comments


Sorry to be posting this so late (see deadline) but it only just now came to our attention. That part about 750 words sounds familiar:

WriterAdvice is searching for flash fiction, memoir, and creative non-fiction that grabs, surprises, and mesmerizes readers in fewer than 750 words. If you have a story or memoir with a strong theme, sharp images, a solid structure, and an unexpected discovery, please submit it to the WriterAdvice Flash Prose Contest.

DEADLINE: April 15, 2010

PRIZES: First Place earns $150; Second Place earns $75; Third Place earns $50; Fourth Place earns $25; Honorable Mentions will also be published.

All entries should be typed, double-spaced and submitted in hard copy, not e-mail. Entries must be postmarked by April 15, 2010. Send them to B. Lynn Goodwin, WriterAdvice, P.O. Box 2665, Danville, CA 94526.

You may enter UP TO THREE stories. Enclose a $10 check for EACH entry made payable to B. Lynn Goodwin. This will help defray the costs of the contest.

    It’s not too late. We have 48–make that 52 hours (PT) until the envelopes must be postmarked. We’d love to read your writing. BTW, 750 words is the max. Some people can create a great impact in fewer words.

    Take care,
