Attention all pen-wranglers, all ink-smugglers, all red-eyed, midnight desk-jockeys: there are only 6-days left to enter the Literature and Libation Longhand Fiction writing contest!
Any kind of story is welcome, as long as some part of it – notes, outlines, bios, a single sentence – was written by a pen, on some paper. Do you have 300-1200 words to spare? Win some free editing! Free wordly advice from a person who spends most of his day rolling around in verbs like a cat in a fresh batch of nip.
Submit before Monday, July 15, at 11:59 PM, EST, and your story will be featured on the blog, alongside the other entries, to be read and loved and voted for.
Two winners – one selected by the collective decision making power of the blogging public, the other by the collective decision making power of all my creeping craziness – will receive editorial feedback on their story and another piece of their choosing.
Don’t be shy! Submit anything you got! A story you jotted down on the train, a tale you wove in the middle of a boring work meeting, even a single innocent line turned entire epic narrative arc. The more the merrier, the merrier the better.
I look forward to reading your entries!
