THE 'WHO IS PETE SEVANG?' WRITING CONTEST
Deadline: THURSDAY, JANUARY 15!
Yep that's right, there's still a contest for your creative outlets, deadline extended to January 15th, because I know some of you have *intriguing* manuscripts in the works and I want to read them! So the question of the day is "Who is Pete Sevang?" Similar rules apply.
This is a fiction contest based on no actual person, except to the extent that fiction draws on real life, i.e. you can base Pete Sevang on your real life evil stepfather bent on publicly humiliating you, but you must give him a Texas accent and a Batman costume that he steals away in at night.
What we do know about Pete Sevang: He is a writer lurking in Buenos Aires that nobody has met.
Send a paragraph of flash fiction or a poem (limit 250 words) on the topic 'Who is Pete Sevang?' to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Who is Pete Sevang?" in the subject heading. Deadline JANUARY 15, 2009. First, second and third prize entries will be published on our blog and reserve an honorary slot to read them at the forthcoming open mike (to be announced).
