Rose Metal Press: Fifth Annual Short Short Chapbook Contest!

Rose Metal Press's Fifth Annual Short Short Chapbook Contest submission period begins October 15 and ends December 1, 2010. The 2010 judge will be Kim Chinquee. Our very own Mary Hamilton won last year's contest, so this is one dear to our hearts! Submit, submit, submit and best of luck to all!

Further info from Rose Metal Press:

During the submission period, please email your 25–40 page double-spaced manuscript of short short stories under 1,000 words each to us at either as Word docs or rtf files. Individual stories may have appeared in journals or anthologies, but we ask that collections as a whole be previously unpublished. Please accompany your entry with the $10 reading fee, either via the payment button on our website or by check. We
prefer the former, but the latter can be sent to PO Box 1956, Brookline, MA 02446.

Writers of both fiction and nonfiction are encouraged to enter, and we are open to short shorts on all subjects and in all styles.

Winner and finalists will be announced by February 2011. The winning chapbook will be published in July 2011 in a limited edition of 300 copies, with an introduction by the contest judge.
