Go wild: Cast a vote in CL's 2013 Fiction Contest

We received a truly wild assortment of entries to Creative Loafing's 2013 Fiction Contest, which makes sense because that was the theme: "Wild" — interpreted any way the authors saw fit.

Our contest judge — award-winning novelist and short story writer Karen Brown — has chosen the Top 10 stories in the competition, and readers now get to choose a favorite from that list. Voting continues at cltampa.com/FictionContest2013 until Wed. Dec. 11 at 5 p.m.

The winners of the Judge's Prize and Readers' Choice will be announced at an awards reception and reading on Wed., Dec. 18, at 7:30 in CL Space, 1911 N. 13th, Tampa. The winning stories will be published in CL's Fiction and Books Issue on Dec. 19.
