The second Great Big Awesome (Short) Fiction Contest, conceived and run by Moon Topples is now open. If you would like to chance your arm, or rather your pen, mosey on over to his blog right now and see the details for yourself. You will find the conditions and rules here.
The first GBA(s)FC was a great success and much enjoyed by all those who took part. I can easily imagine this becoming a standard and well loved event in blogland, to the joy of amateur and professional writers alike.
You don’t have to be a professional writer to enter or to have a chance of winning. The important ingredients are enthusiasm and a love of writing. Take a look at the conditions and if you think you have a story to tell, give it a shot. If nothing else, you will be in good company and have fun.
