I almost missed the email, but here is a link to the winner and some of the runner-up entries from the Gotham Writer’s Workshop 25 word story contest that I mentioned here earlier.
In addition to enjoying the stories, scroll down to the bottom of the page for links to two more competitions. There is a 30 word (that is 30 words exactly) story contest that is underway – entry deadline is Nov. 30. There is also a “YA Discovery Novel Contest” with a deadline of Nov. 30. For $15 you can submit the first 250 words of a YA novel for prizes including an invitation to submit the full manuscript to a YA agent in New York, a free writing workshop, and critiques by editors at Candlewick, Scholastic, Harlequin, MacMillan, Viking, Roaring Brook Press, and Sourcebooks, who will judge the finalists.
Why not give it a shot?
