Saturday, January 4, 2014 marks the inaugural First Saturday Short Story Contest. Check the rules and parameters on the Starwriterweekly.com website. The entry fee is $10. Cash and prizes awarded.
"A storyline prompt and the word count is issued on the day of the contest. Winners are announced the following week. The contest is limited to 200 entries," said Lynda StarWriter. "It's a great way to rev up and polish creative energy, as well, to get the winning story out there," she said.
