I don’t know about you, but when I enter writing contests, I am very vigilant about the deadlines. That is why I was happy to read that Memphis magazine has extended the deadline for one of its annual writing contests from February 1, 2014 to February 15, 2014.
It’s kind of like a Valentine’s Day gift to yourself.
If you have a previously unpublished short story between 3,000 and 4,500 words, and live within 150 miles of Memphis, you can enter this contest. All entries require a $10 entry fee.
You can send your story to: Fiction Contest, c/0 Memphis magazine, P.O. Box 1738, Memphis, TN 38101. Winning entries will receive $1,000 and be featured in the June issue.
Additional details on the contest can be found here.
