WriterAdvice, www.writeradvice.com, seeks flash memoir, a personal life story from your life, running 750 words or less. Enlighten, dazzle, and delight us. Finalists receive responses from all judges.
DEADLINE: Submit to the WriterAdvice Flash Memoir Contest by March 1, 2017.
JUDGES will be former prizewinners. Their names will be announced soon.
PRIZES: First Place earns $125; Second Place earns $75; Third Place earns $50 and all 3 will be published in Writer Advice. Honorable Mentions will also be listed.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
1. Include your name, contact information, and title in the cover letter, but only include your title in the submission so it remains anonymous.
2. Since we judge these anonymously, you don’t need a cover letter that includes more than your contact information. If you are a finalist, we’ll ask for a bio.
3. Please double-space your submission. We recommend that you use a 14-point font that is easy to read. Times New Roman, Cambria, and Ariel all spring to mind.
4. We’re reading these as blind submissions so put both your name and your title in your cover letter but leave them off your manuscript.
You may enter UP TO THREE stories, but each is a separate submission with a separate fee of $13.
Names of all winners will be announced in the summer issue of WriterAdvice, www.writeradvice.com.
E-mail questions, but not submissions to editor B. Lynn Goodwin at Lgood67334@comcast.net.
