The annual Missouri Writers' Guild Conference always hosts a contest for published works from the previous year for members of the Guild. I'll be posting the categories over the next few weeks.
The big news this year is that different chapters/sponsors are also holding contests open to anyone who has registered and paid for the conference, not just members of the Guild. Entries for these contests can be published or unpublished works.
I'll be doing a series of posts profiling each chapter/sponsor contest, as well as the members-only Guild contest.
There are seventeen different contests open to anyone attending the conference. Entries must be postmarked between January 1 and March 1, 2008, so get them ready but don't send them off until the new year.
The first contest I'll cover is for my chapter of the Missouri Writers' Guild, Saturday Writers:
Saturday Writers presents the Flash Fiction Contest: Send us your fiction from 99-500 words. No excessive gore or violence. The entry fee is $5. I will post further details on where to send entry fees later.
Send entries to: Saturday Writers Flash Fiction Contest (Don't start submitting until January 1, 2008)
