Before I get to traditional news, reviewer Carol Smallwood has offered us a complimentary copy of Women Writing on Family: Tips on Writing, Teaching and Publishing (Key Publishing House, 2012) as a giveaway for you or a friend. To enter the giveaway, go to Writer Advice, find the page the offer is on, and send me the URL of that page. If you have a question about our new Scintillating Starts Contest or about the journaling process, you can ask in the same e-mail if you like. Our book winner will be notified on July 30.
Our summer issue starts with news of our Scintillating Starts Contest, links to our Flash Prose winners pieces, and an interview with Karen Bergreen, the author of Following Polly. We have reviews by Anne Sigmon, Aline Soules, Carol Smallwood, Nanette McGuiness, and me, a new website review by Brianne Wetovick, and a whole new set of markets for flash fiction on Contests & Markets.
Congratulations to Flash Prose Contest winners, Marcelle Soviero, JL Schneider, Madeline Stevens. You don't want to miss their stories.
Do you have a manuscript looking for a publisher? Consider submitting the start to our Scintillating Starts Contest.
