Can you use $50, $25, or $15 extra cash in your pocket? Of course you can! Write a scary (or not so scary) story for moolah, cash, coin of the realm!
Ligonier Valley Writers wants wordsmiths and scribes to enthrall us with short stories for its annual Flash Fiction Contest. Ed Kelemen, contest chair, set the deadline for the contest at the stroke of midnight on August 14, 2012, when the last grain of the hourglass trickles away.
The Ligonier Valley Writers, knowing the lack of cash in most writers' wallets, is pleased to announce that there will be NO ENTRY FEE for this contest.
This year's topic is Dragons.
Flash fiction means that the story must be less than 1,000 words long.
To save a few trees, this year's entrants are encouraged to submit electronically. Please place your story in the body of an email and send it to Ed Kelemen at email@example.com. Do not send it as an attachment. Attachments will not be opened.
Include a short bio, no more than 150 words, with your story.

The rights revert to me six months after the story is published.”
Include your name, address and contact information.
