"Two Lights" Short Fiction Contest Information
My friends, I'm very pleased to announce the opening of The "Two Lights" Short Fiction Contest!
The challenge is simple. Using the photograph above for inspiration, compose a short fiction piece of no more than 250 words. All genres are welcome.
The prizes are:
--1st Place, a $25 Amazon gift certificate + a signed 8x10 print of the "Two Lights" photo or any other photo from [the Gallery]
--2nd Place, a $10 Amazon gift certificate + a signed 8x10 print (see above)
--3rd Place (if I get at least 10 entries), a signed 8x10 print (see above)
I will judge the entries and announce the winners on Friday evening, April 28th.
E-mail your entry to jevanswriter at yahoo dot com no later than 8:00 p.m. (eastern time), Thursday April 27th. If you'd like, you can add either a link to your website/blog or a short bio with your entry.
All entries will be posted here and indexed for easy access. I encourage everyone to read and comment on each other's entries. Beyond just competitions, these contests are wonderful opportunities to discuss writing and learn from each other.
Spread the word! Have fun and good luck!!
UPDATE in response to questions:
1. Titles (optional) do not count toward the 250 words.
2. After the winners are announced, I will add a comment on each entry saying what I liked best about it.
3. Although you consent to having your piece posted here by entering the contest, all rights to your entry remain with you, the author.
