So, here's what we're doing for AWP 2009.
UPDATE: Guest judge for the flash fiction contest will be 2009 Rose Metal Press chapbook contest winner, SEAN LOVELACE.
$200 FLASH FICTION CONTEST
The rules are simple. The contest will be on-site. February 11-14 in Chicago. NO entry fee. One flash per person. Must be previously unpublished. Write a small flash, 200 words or less, and turn it in at the DOGZPLOT table before Saturday, February 14th, at noon. We pick a winner by 2 pm, and hand them the cash.
All entries will be read blind. Only your flash and your phone number should appear on the entry. If you win we call you. If you aren't still around on Saturday at 2pm, we'll mail it. But we're taking $.50 for postage.
We may give some free books to some runners up, depends how we're feeling.
Hope to see you all there. Bring your best flashes with you.
Please help spread the word on this one. Please repost wherever and whenever you can. Thanks.
Also, we reserve the right to publish any of the entries on the DOGZPLOT flash fiction site.
