Flash Short Story Contest Next

As soon as the poetry contest Honorable Mentions are announced, I will move the poems about children to the Archive page and announce the new contest. Since it has a due date of October 15th, I want to give your muse time to formulate an entry.

I need a submission for my anthology, tentatively called “A Class of Muses” which will be at the printers by October 31st. The anthology explores genres and I realized I had nothing in the Western category. Yes, the contest theme will be a western flash story, 500 words or less, with a character arc and a story arc as usual in a longer story.

Winning entry will be published in my anthology.

Due three weeks from today. I know you can do it.

Please do not post any entries yet. I’ll tell you when.

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.
