The Second Annual Warren Adler Short Story Contest

The Second Annual Warren Adler Short Story Contest is seeking submissions that capture the essence of New York in an endeavor to publicize and promote the art of the fictional short story and restore its place as a prime literary format.

The first prize winner, to be announced in conjunction with the publication of Warren Adler’s latest short story collection New York Echoes, will be awarded $1,000; all five finalists will also be awarded personalized first editions of Mr. Adler’s collection. Natural Selection by Kathleen Hood Haskins won the inaugural Warren Adler Short Story Contest last year.

As a bonus, the story judged best by Warren Adler, along with a People’s Choice award chosen from among the finalists via online reader vote, will be published and available for sale on Amazon shorts. Cool, huh? And all five finalist stories will be featured via “live” readings on Amazon’s Theater on Second Life.

Deadline is January 15, 2008.
