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.
