• Texas Observer Short Story Contest, 2013

    Posted Posted by David Duhr in WBN News & Events     Comments No comments

    The 2013 Texas Observer Short Story Contest is open for submissions, gang. This year’s guest judge is Dagoberto Gilb, and the winning writer receives $1,000 and publication in the annual Books Issue.

    Read about the two past contests here, and follow this link for details, guidelines, and to enter.

    When asked what he looks for in good short fiction, Mr. Gilb says this:

    “I want nothing but the wildest punk prose. Or the finest classical verse as prose. I like stories of those who never have stories written about them, or the under-the-rock scurrying of those who seem to have it all. I want the story to be treated as importantly as a novel or a poem, crafted as neurotically about details and punctuation as a jeweler with an eyepiece.”

    Y’all write wild punk prose, yes? (And y’all are neurotic, yes?)
