Contest Winner & September Topic

By on Sep 5, 2010 in Contests

Congratulations to Lindsey Renuard, who won our June short-form contest at Wild Violet.  Her winning entry will be viewable both from the direct link here and from the “Contest Winners” category (accessible from the sidebar).

My apologies for not running contests in July and August, but I was busy adjusting to life with my newborn baby. Gradually, I’m getting back on track, so now I’ll announce the topic for our monthly short-form writing contests (500 words for fiction, 20 lines for poetry).

Topic: “Back in the Saddle”
Deadline: midnight, Friday, September 24

To enter, post a link to your entry, which can appear on either a personal site or any blog. If you must, you can e-mail it to wildvioletmagazine@yahoo.com, with the subject line: “September Contest Entry.” Please do not post your entry directly into the comments.

After the deadline, I’ll create a poll, allowing people to vote. The September winner will receive a package of Wild Violet postcards and publication.

  1. Curiosity… Are the 500 words fiction or 20 lines poetry ceilings or requirements? i know it should be obvious, but I can be a bit dense at times lol.

  2. Oh and, one other question if I might bother you again… I assume one entry per “customer”? Or might you accept one of each. Either is good, just feeling out the territory.
