If you write fiction – or want to give it a shot – consider entering the 2nd Annual Montezuma All-Iowa Writers’ Conference Fiction Writing Contest.

In addition to the adulation of your peers, and the right to promote yourself as an award-winning writer, you may win cash! First prize takes home $100.

Manuscripts must be 2,500 words or less, postmarked by Sept. 1, 2011. Winners will be announced at the 2011 Writers Conference on Sept. 17. You don’t need to be present to win.

For more details on both the contest and the conference, check out ourfrontporchbooks.com

In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll be speaking at the Conference on Sept. 17.

Join the conversation. Your comments or questions welcomed!
