      THIRD ANNUAL FLASH PROSE CONTEST SPONSORED BY WRITER ADVICE--Deadline
      April 10, 2008

      WriterAdvice, www.writeradvice.com, is searching for flash fiction,
      memoir, and creative non-fiction that grabs, surprises, and mesmerizes
      readers in fewer than 750 words. If you have a complete story with a
      strong theme, sharp images, a solid structure, and an unexpected
      discovery, please submit it to the WriterAdvice Flash Prose Contest.

      All entries should be typed and submitted in hard copy, not e-mail, to
      B. Lynn Goodwin, WriterAdvice, P.O. Box 2665, Danville, CA 94526-4339.
      Entries must be postmarked by APRIL 10, 2008.

      You may enter UP TO THREE pieces. Enclose a $10 check for EACH entry
      made payable to B. Lynn Goodwin. This will help defray the costs of the
      contest. If no prizes are awarded, checks will be refunded.

      Include a SEPARATE cover sheet with your name, address, phone number,
      current e-mail address, and each story title. Please put the story
      title, but not your name, at the top of each page. Finalists will be
      asked to submit a brief biography and an e-mail copy of the story.

      Names of all winners will be announced in the summer issue of
      WriterAdvice, www.writeradvice.com. Winning stories will run in Writer
      Advice.

      JUDGES: Last year's prizewinners, Daniel F. Rousseau, WC Vasquez, Kay
      Jordan, and Suzanne LaFetra have been invited to be this year's judges.

      Entries.

      First Place earns $75, Second Place earns $50, Third Place earns $35,
      and Fourth Place earns $20. Honorable Mentions will also be published.
      A list of all winners will be posted in the summer issue of
      WriterAdvice.

      SPECIAL PERK: All entries accompanied by an SASE will be returned with
      brief comments. An article about last year's contest, called WHAT WORKS
