Upcoming Contests

Everyone, here are two free contests to think about...

The Atlantic Monthly has an annual Student Writing Contest with a prize of $1,000 dollars. It's a free contest (no payment to enter) - entrants simply must be full time students (for Mason, is that 6 credits?). The judges ask for no more than 7,500 words of fiction post-marked by December 1st. Go here for details. An odd twist of the contest: winning entries do not get published in The Atlantic Monthly; check out last May's issue to see what happens instead...

The Willesden Herald International Short Story Prize is seeking submissions. For this contest, there's no length requirement, nor is there an entry fee. The prize is 5,000 pounds. Zadie Smith will judge the finalists. Entries received after December 21st will not be considered. Go here for details. Oh also, the winning story is published in an anthology and the winning author receives a specially inscribed mug?
