SONORA CONCENTRATED NONFICTION CONTEST
$15 ENTRY FEE
A prize of $1,000 and publication in Sonora Review. Up to 1,000 words. Deadline June 1, 2010.
By “concentrated nonfiction” we mean a short essay of any variety under 1000 words, not limited to any specific type of essay. In fact, we encourage creativity that projects the malleability of the form. We also are willing to publish multimedia essays as long as the main force of the essay is through language (and it is short).
NOTE: You don't find many essay contests, much less "flash" essay. I adore reading a crisp, pointed, remarkable logical piece like this. They are hard to write and make them snap. If you enter, your entry fee gets you a copy of the Sonora Review.
DOUBLE NOTE: Dang it's hard to make myself write these novel chapters. I've been doing P90X exercising as well as tending the chickens and planting the garden, and I drop into bed now at night. I think the physical activity is sapping my brain!
