short fiction contest

one of my favorite blogs is jason evans' haunting and serene clarity of night.

right now jason is having another one of his fabulous writing contests.

It's called "Midnight Road" and is paired with one of Jason's amazing photos.

short fiction contest

From jason's blog:

"Using the photograph above for inspiration, compose a short fiction piece of no more than 250 words in any genre or style. Paste your entry into an email and send it to me at jevanswriter at yahoo dot com any time between now and midnight, Wednesday, June 28th (Eastern Standard Time, United States). Each entry will be posted and indexed.

To make things interesting, the following prizes are on the line (and to support the publishing industry!!):

1st Place, $35 Amazon gift certificate
2nd Place, $25 Amazon gift certificate
3rd Place, $15 Amazon gift certificate
4th Place, $10 Amazon gift certificate
5th Place, $5 Amazon gift certificate

But this is about more than prizes. I hope you take advantage of the opportunity to meet and interact with your fellow writers. Read and comment on the entries. Teach, and learn, from others. Let's make writing a less lonely process."

other great short fiction sites:

kelly parra's fictional musings

tribe's flashing in the gutters

both of these sites accept flash fiction of 700 words or less.

if you haven't tried flash fiction, watch out. it's addicting!
