Faith in Fiction Short Story Contest

Get busy! Posted by Picasa

f a i t h * i n * f i c t i o n: The Next Short Story Contest:

While all my short stories always end up being novels, I'm sure other people will want to enter Dave's second contest, so here are the rules!
1. 3000 words or less.
2. I have no definition for what a conversion story is, but we're talking about some Christian salvific experience. It also needs to be fiction, no autobiography or memoir.
3. Deadline will be Friday, September 30, 5:00pm central time. Earlier is appreciated.
4. I haven't talked with anybody about partnering on this one, but I'll try to track somebody down. Let me know if you have suggestions or contacts at online journals.
5. There will be prizes for the chosen finalists. They will be more symbolic than impressive. Unless someone wants to give me a grant.
6. But remember, these things get read and a book contract emerged out of the last group.
