      miniStories flash fiction contest launches--we need your short fiction!
      http://www.mnartists.org/article.do?rid=180466

      mnartists.org is launching a new short-short fiction competition and publication series for
      Minnesota writers. Submission deadline is March 28, 2008.
      CALL FOR MINNESOTA WRITERS
      The deadline for submissions for the first round in this short fiction contest is MARCH 28,
      2008.
      mnartists.org is launching miniStories, a quarterly short-short fiction competition
      coordinated by Electric Arc Radio's Geoff Herbach (author of The Miracle Letters of T.
      Rimburg, forthcoming from Three Rivers Press). This new literary series will showcase
      previously unpublished short stories by Minnesota writers which will be selected by
      authors, editors, and publishing industry veterans from across the country. Winning
      stories will be published on mnartists.org and in the e-magazine access+ENGAGE. One
      grand-prize winning author will be selected from each quarter's miniStories winners by
      series coordinator Geoff Herbach to receive a paid commission for a longer-form short
      story which will be published on mnartists.org.
      There will be readings at the Ritz Theater in Minneapolis at the end of each quarter's
      contest cycle, at which miniStories winners and judges will read their fiction. An anthology
      collecting the inaugural year's miniStories winning fiction will be published in April 2009
      and available for sale at area bookstores.

      The judges for the first round of miniStories:
      Lindsey Moore, Associate Editor at Crown/Three Rivers Press, NY, NY
      Stephanie Wilbur Ash, Books and Literature Editor, Metro Magazine, Twin Cities
      David Oppegaard, author of The Suicide Collectors, forthcoming from St. Martin's Press

      submissions are welcome, but writers must be Minnesota residents and be (or become)
      member artists of mnartists.org to enter the contest. Registration on mnartists.org is FREE.
