Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest Update

The Chron's Short Story Contest narrows the field to 10

Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest Update

On Friday I had the happy task of calling up our 10 finalists for this year's Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest. Good news for them, but, alas, bad news for the almost 500 other writers who submitted this year (almost double last year's number of submissions!).

The winners for the 17th Annual Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest will be announced on Wednesday, Feb. 11 at BookPeople (6th & Lamar) at 7pm. There'll be some munchables, as well as readings of the 1st through 3rd place stories. Come one and come all, and for goodness' sake, submit again next year. Practice makes perfect, eh?
