Calling all Writers of Short Fiction . . .
This contest, sponsored by The Texas Observer, could be a great opportunity. Limit is 2500 words, guest judge is none other than Larry McMurtry. Deadline: May 1. Entry Fee: $25. (For an extra $10, you can get your story critiqued by fiction editor David Duhr)
Good luck! (And why does the mere mention of McMurtry's name make me want to go back and reread Lonesome Dove?)
