FAULT ZONE ANTHOLOGY
Enter your short story in the FAULT ZONE contest. DEADLINE IS AUGUST 31, 2013. This contest is for non-members of the SF/Peninsula Branch of California Writers Club.
Fault Zone: Shift, the fourth in the anthology series edited by the SF/Peninsula Branch of California Writers, will be published by Sand Hill Review Press later in 2013. Non-members of SF/Peninsula Writers are eligible to enter the Fault Zone short story contest.
Fault Zone isn’t only about earthquakes. It’s about personal faults, shortcomings, and the foibles of being human. In a way, we all live on a fault zone. Write from the heart. Be edgy. Be wild. But make sure your story has an arc. Stories involving California are always appreciated.
First Prize is $250 and publication in our next Fault Zone anthology.
Second Prize is $100.
Third Prize is $50.
Contest deadline has been extended for Non-Members to August 31, 2013
Reading fee is $15.
Previously published work will be considered; let us know where it has appeared. Judging should be completed by end of September. The prelaunch book party will be in early December and the book will be available on Amazon by January, 2014. The San Francisco/Peninsula Writers will be the contest judges. Your piece should relate to the anthology’s theme in some way. We can’t wait to see it!
