UPDATE: Scratch that: ONE DAY LEFT. Like, 11 hours! YOU HAVE 11 HOURS LEFT
We know it's the holidays, okay? We get that.
You only have one shot (per year) to have your fiction published in the Inlander, though. And you only have one week left to enter. Nine days, to get precise. At 11:59 pm, Dec. 1, the window shuts on the entry period.
To be fair, we've been telling you about this for a while.
This is the only fiction that is ever published in the Inlander. That would make you a pioneer. And the topic this year is important:
Talk about the economy. Talk about family. Talk about a veterinarian and her selfless attempts to save a marmot with colic.
So take the long weekend and put quill to ink or finger to keyboard key, however you work your magic, and tell us a story.
If you don't do it, you'll wish you had. In the immortal words of John Donne: "Send not to knowFor whom the blog bellows, it bellows for thee."
FULL DETAILS: Submit original, unpublished short stories, under 2,000 words, dealing with the concept of debt, however you wish to define it.
DEADLINE: Stories must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 1. The subject line of the email should read "Fiction Contest Entry." The best stories will be published in our Dec. 22 Issue.
