If you've been procrastinating, or rewriting, or rewriting as a form of procrastinating, you need to take a look at the time. You've only got 24 hours till the final deadline for entering the 2013 Creative Loafing Fiction Contest.
If you know you've got a winning story but you just want to give it a few more tweaks — well, alright, but don't say we didn't warn you: Time is running out. The deadline for submitting your entry is Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 5 p.m.
Here are the contest basics:
The theme is "Wild," which you can incorporate or interpret any way you like. The judge is award-winning short story writer and novelist Karen Brown. Judge's prize is $500; readers' choice is $250, with readers voting online from Dec. 4-11. Winners will read from their work on Wed., Dec. 18, at CL Space, and the winning stories will be published in CL on Dec. 19.
