In case you haven’t heard about it yet, for the second year in a row, Tamale Hut Cafe is holding its Short Story Contest!
Do you have a story that’s 3000 words or less and that you think is worth a nice chunk of prize money? (Or, have you been looking for some kind of external motivation to sit down and finally get that story idea banging around in your head down on paper?) Then check out the Tamale Hut Cafe 2015 Short Story Contest. It doesn’t matter what genre you work in, but it does matter 1) that you submit the story through the contest’s Submittable page by July 10, 2015, and 2) if you’re chosen as one of the top prize winners, that you can come hang out at Tamale Hut Cafe and read your story on Saturday, November 21, 2015. So take a look!
A disclaimer: we here at the Tamale Hut Cafe Reading Series have nothing to do with running the contest, so check out the two pages linked above if you have questions or comments for the contest organizers. However, we will be welcoming the first, second, and third place winners as our featured readers in November 2015, so we hope to see you then.
