Wabach Prize for Fiction by the Sycamore Review
First Prize: $1,000 and winning entry published in Summer/Fall 2010 issue. Entries of honorable mention also published in Summer/Fall 2010 issue. Deadline extended to March 8, 2010. The reading fee includes a copy of the prize issue. Submit one piece of fiction (or a series of related short-shorts) totaling no more than 10,000 words.

NOTE: A solid competition. If you write general fiction, why not dare to enter a high purse contest? I'm not saying spend your writing career submitting to contests day and night, but everyone should add a contest or two to his submission list each year. You have two weeks on this one to pen a fresh new piece.

DOUBLE NOTE: Back to the novel. Opened Chapter 3 to rip it a new one last night and wound up tweaking it instead. I thought it flowed. Hmmm, maybe a glass of bourbon will loosen me up.

Another exciting thing about this contest is that writer Peter Ho Davies will be the guest judge.
