Does anyone have any information about the 2005 Gather Short Fiction
Competition on gatherinc.com? Once before I entered a contest, and won, and never even got a certificate! This one sounds legit but so did the other one. At least there's no entry fee. My main concern is that the entries have to be in by
Jan. 15 and the short listed authors are notified by January 31. But to be
eligible, you have to publish the story on their site, though judging is
only on the emailed entry. Then, I assume, it's considered officially
published and if it doesn't win you couldn't sell it elsewhere.
If you've ever heard anything about this competition--good, bad, or
otherwise--please let me know. Thanks!
