I’m on the board of The Newport Review and will be one of the editors reviewing manuscripts for this Flash Fiction contest. The deadline is coming up — October 31, 2007. Here are the details:
Third Annual Newport Review Flash Fiction Contest
Prizes of $100, $75, $50 will be awarded in the annual Newport Review Flash Fiction Contest. The three prize-winning stories will be published in The Newport Review.
We are looking for works that are short in length but linger long in memory: small stories that pack a big emotional punch and make creative use of language.

Word Count: Short-short stories up to 750 words
Entry fee: $7 per story, 3 for $20
Mail manuscripts w/check or money order (made out to Newport Review) to:

Writers may submit a total of six entries. The contest is open to all writers, published and unpublished, except writers personally affiliated with the Newport Review, its editorial staff or board of directors. Past contest winners and those who have been published in the print edition of Newport Review are eligible to enter.
