No Entry Fee Contest from The Verb

The threat of snow this weekend reminded me of a short story (only) contest going on right now at ReadingWriters.

The contest theme is "Winter Wind," and there's a story prompt to get you started. Here are some highlights:
* No entry fee
* Grand prize $100
* Winning story published in The Verb
* Receive a story opinion.
* Word limit 1,500.
* Contest details can be found here.
* Deadline is January 15, so you still have time, but not much.

While you're there, check out past contest winners and opinions. I found the editor's analysis of what works in a winning story extremely helpful.

Hope you have a great weekend, and stay warm!
