This time of year we often run a short story contest to shake things up a bit and have some fun. In spite of the fact that TFF has been kinda quiet lately I thought I'd throw it out there: Does anyone have an interest in participating in another short story contest this year? To run it I need people to volunteer to write and others to volunteer to judge. Writers would have a month to write a story with a maximum length of 5000 words. Ideally, we'd start writing June 15 and you'd have to submit a story by July 15. Judges would then score the stories and have to get their scores in by August 15th. We'd announce results before September 1st. I usually mail a prize of some kind to the winner (last year the winner got a t-shirt designed by our own Taliesyn). Anyway, if people could sign up in this thread, we'll proceed if there is enough interest.
