For you VSF writers, here are two contests worth checking out. The first is presented by Ben White at Nanoism:
Nanoism just passed its first birthday, and to celebrate we’re doing a big contest. This time, we’re doing it to raise money for Partners in Health, a fantastic NGO that is a major healthcare provider in Haiti. We have both free and paid entries, cash prizes, giveaways from some great independent publishers, and a most excellent judge, Ethan Canin. The details:
- Really. A story must be 140 characters (spaces included!) or less, no titles.
- Read our submission guidelines and archives if you’re unfamiliar with the premise. There are a surprising number of different approaches to this form.
- Every submission will be considered for publication. We wear glasses; it will be okay.
- Contest ends Friday, April 30 at midnight.
The second is presented by J.A. Tyler at Mud Luscious Press:
anyone who has ordered from us in the past knows that we have already made some slick looking ephemera bookmarks with cover designs & excerpts from forthcoming novel(la)s, but we plan on giving all of our back-stock of those away at AWP & will need something new to send in June with our next two novel(la)s & our chapbook subscriptions.
So what are you waiting for? Go submit!
