June Contest Poll

By on Jun 28, 2010 in Contests

After a brief hiatus while my husband and I got to know our newborn baby boy, I’m finding time to get back to work. So it’s finally time to vote for the first Wild Violet monthly short-form contest. For this month’s contest, we have three entries, a little better than in May. Please let your friends know that the July topic will be coming soon.

The June topic was “Round and Round.”

The first entry is a poem, “Gizmo is Missing,” by Lindsey Renuard, which can be read at this link:


The second entry is a poem, “Incense,” by Amy M. Levy, which you can read at this link:


The third entry is a flash fiction piece, “Self Repair,” by Elizabeth J. Allen, at this link:


You can vote only once, so please choose carefully! The poll will be open until 11:30 a.m. on Monday, July 5.

The winner of the June contest will receive a Wild Violet rectangular magnet, publication, and will be eligible to compete as a finalist in the annual short-form contest.
