2009 Short Story Competition

Nicholas Laughlin and I are the judges for this contest.

Short story competition updates: Judges & new deadline for submissions

1. Judges for the short story competition:

--Nicholas Laughlin; writer, poet, editor of the Caribbean Review of Books.

--Geoffrey Philp; writer, poet, literary critic.

2. As a result of a recently discovered conflicting schedule, I've changed the deadline for submissions to the competition. The new deadline is April 15, 2009. Thanks to those of you who have already submitted entries. Be reminded that each person is allowed up to three entries.

3. Included in my initial prize package were two US$50 prizes for outstanding participation in a workshop to be run by Ruel Johnson. Since that workshop has been postponed, I've added that money to the other prizes. Updated prizes:

--1st Prize: US$550 + publication (TBA)

--2nd Prize: US$325 + publication (TBA)

--3rd Prize: US$125 + publication (TBA)

4. Winners will be announced in May 2009.

Happy writing to you!

Claire, the competition is open only to Guyanese writers living in Guyana.
However, you may consider tongues of the ocean.

Good luck!
