Here's a little something passed along to me from a fellow practicing writer. The announcement comes from the Food Writing ezine.
"Food Writing, a bi-weekly ezine, is sponsoring a short story contest. There is no fee to enter your short story with food as an ingredient, but you must be a subscriber to Food Writing (it's free; subscribe now at www.food-writing.com).
Rules: 500 words maximum. Food must be included in the short story. It can be the main character or in the background but food is essential! Three winners will be awarded $50 each plus publication in Food Writing ezine and on the Food Writing website. Winners will be chosen by three judges including the publisher of Food Writing.
Deadline: April 21, midnight.
Winners Announced in the May 2 issue of Food Writing.
Other: No fee to enter but must be a subscriber of Food Writing, a free online newsletter. 500 maximum word count. Email entry to: FoodandFiction@yahoo.com ."
And speaking of free online newsletters, the March issue of our own "Practicing Writer" (for fictionists, poets, and writers of creative nonfiction) went out to subscribers last Friday. Archives are available to subscribers only, but you can read the current issue republished here.
