I want to share another upcoming writing contest with you all. Glimmer Train Press is holding its Short Story Award for New Writers contest. The Press will accept fictional short stories between 1,000 and 12,000 words long. The first place winner will receive $2,500 and publication in Glimmer Train Stories. (Second and third place winners will receive lesser cash prizes and have the chance for publication as well.)
The deadline for entry is October 31, so if you are interested in entering, check out the contest page for more details at http://www.glimmertrain.com/pages/guidelines/short_story_award_for_new_writers_guidelines.php. The website also lists previous contest finalists and winners, and it is always worth a look to see the names of some up and coming writers.
If you enter, I wish you all the luck!
