Glimmer Train Press hosts a contest every single month. This month’s contest is called Fiction Open. The ground rules are pretty much just write a short story between 2,000-20,000 words. All themes are welcomed, according to Glimmer Train Press’ website. Submissions are being accepted between now and June 30th at midnight Pacific Time.
I’ve got a sketch of a story started for this month’s competition. I’m hoping between now and Friday to stretch that sketch into a few thousand words. That gives me a week to let the piece sit, a week for revisions, and hopefully I’ll have a polished piece by the end of the month.
So, who wants to join me? I figure the more the merrier, right? You can find all the rules at http://www.glimmertrain.com.
Meanwhile, I’ll be busy working on my short story and ignoring my health until further notice.
