Press 53 Flash Fiction Contest -- Deadline Approaching!

The deadline for the Press 53 Flash Fiction Contest is rapidly approaching. Writers of flash fiction should send us something under 750 words before February 20th. Three winners--announced at AWP in Seattle on February 27--will be published in SmokeLong Quarterly, Prime Number Magazine or Metazen. They'll also receive signed books from the three judges--Bonnie ZoBell, Shaindel Beers and me, Christopher Allen. This is a great opportunity for writers of the short short form. You don't have to be at AWP in Seattle to win, and the contest IS FREE.
