Steve Almond To Judge Fringe's Inaugural Flash Fiction Contestby Fringe Magazine • 08.10.2012
Pushcart-Prize-winner Steve Almond will judge Fringe Magazine’s first flash fiction contest. First prize is $350 and publication in Fringe, second prize $100, and third prize is $50. All entries will be considered for publication. Submissions open within a form on our blog that will go live on August 15 and close at midnight on October 15, 2012.
The entry fee is $10, payable via PayPal and submissions must be fiction of 1,000 words or less. The first round of elimination will be blind, with Fringe editors David Duhr and Anna Barto making selections. Steve Almond will review finalists and select the winners.
Successful contenders will appeal to the Fringe aesthetic and our judge’s narrative leanings.
