WritersAdvice seeks submissions, holds flash prose contest
Flash Prose Contest:
Submit flash fiction, memoir, or creative non-fiction that grabs, surprises, and mesmerizes readers in fewer than 750 words. If you have a story or memoir with a strong theme, sharp images, a solid structure, and an unexpected discovery, please submit it to the WriterAdvice Flash Prose Contest.
Deadline: April 15, 2010
Prizes: First place $150; second $75; third $50; fourth $25; honorable mentions will also be published.
All entries should be typed, double-spaced and submitted in hard copy, not e-mail. Entries must be postmarked by April 15, 2010. Send them to B. Lynn Goodwin, WriterAdvice, P.O. Box 2665, Danville, CA 94526.
You may enter up to three stories. Enclose a $10 check for each entry made payable to B. Lynn Goodwin. This will help defray the costs of the contest. If no prizes are awarded, checks will be refunded.

Finalists will be asked to submit a brief biography as well as an e-mail copy of the story. Names of all winners will be announced in the summer issue of WritersAdvice http://www.writeradvice.com/
