Get Ready to Write - Good Housekeeping Short Story Contest
Over the past few weeks two writers (both men) have forwarded this Good Housekeeping Short Story contest announcement to me, so I think they might be hinting for me to enter.
I also thought it would be a good idea to share the contest information with Donna's Book Pub visitors and writing friends.
Here are the basics:
Short story - as in FICTION
Story must reflect lives of women today
Must be 21 years old to enter
Legal resident of US or DC
Max word count: 3,500
Only 1 entry per person
Submission period Jul 1, 2011 until Sep 1, 2011
Grand prize: $3,000
Runners up: $750
Winners notified by Feb 15, 2012
