NANO FICTION CONTEST - $500 for 300 words
$15 ENTRY FEE
NANO Fiction is now accepting entries for the Second Annual NANO Prize. $500 and publication will be awarded to a flash fiction piece, prose poem, or micro essay of 300 words or less. Deadline August 31, 2010. Each entrant will also receive a one-year subscription to NANO Fiction. All submitted pieces will be
considered for publication.
NOTE: What's nice is that the entry fee of $15 is for the first entry, and subsequent entries are only $2. Yes, they are basically charging a reading fee to get free material. If you can live with that, this is a rare outlet for that genre of fiction that's so hard yet so fun to write - flash fiction.
DOUBLE NOTE: Yes, one has to write even though she doesn't feel it will be published. It's through those trying, lonely evenings that writing stealthily develops muscle.
