Madness in March - a Leaky Pencil Write-in Special
I wish I could say I was a sports guy, but I'm not. So, that in mind, I'm looking for a different reason to get excited about March.
For the week of March 15 (ye olde Ides), I want to feature stories on this blog... your stories- about madness. I want stories of criminal psychosis, cannibal grannies, that guy who wears bacon as a hat -- you get the idea. If you're interested, send me your stories (any length, up to 2,000 wds) to chrisallinotte (at) gmail (dot) com . Last day for submissions will be March 4, 2011. [Updated details- please send your story pasted into an e-mail, and include a short bio at the end.]
I'll be choosing 7 to run that week.
The best of the runners' up to be featured on this blog on every second Wednesday at thirteen o'clock following the contest.
If your story is the best of the bunch, I'll feature the book of your choice, and its purchase link on this site for 30 days. (There may be a little something else for the winner as well, but that's t.b.d.)
For all the entries, I'll be putting together a PDF chapbook that includes featured stories, as well as any other entries received, to be sent out after everything's finished.
P.S. Legalese: if you do choose to send me a story, and I put it up here - that's basically the first publication rights gone, so please only send if you're okay with that.
