If anyone is interested, Weird Tales is holding a Flash Fiction contest, through August 4th.



You’ve seen the latest wave of spam — you know, the faux outrageous news headlines: “Osama trains goats for tactical bombing.” “Laika the Russian space dog returns to Earth.” “Children admit to being little shits: Video.” Isn’t it a shame the headline is all we get? So here at Weird Tales we’re inviting YOU to turn this spam into… um… spam-ade!
Details can be found here (http://weirdtales.net/wordpress/2008/07/26/weird-tales-writing-contest/). If you need some inspiration, I've posted a list of 11k spam subjects on my blog (http://www.stonetable.org/2008/07/27/weird-tales-contest/).

I submitted one, but I don't like very much. The first draft was 200 words too long, and I think the cutting made it worse, not better.

Thanks for posting about the contest, Stone Table. And good luck to everyone!

That makes two contests I'll hear word from on Saturday. I'm playing the odds! :D

I'd have expected more entries, but maybe the tight deadline discouraged people.

Still, it raises the odds for those who did enter... we can hope anyway. Good luck everyone.
