From the Warren Adler web site (Warren’s a part-time Jackson resident):
On July 13, Stonehouse Press will launch the second annual Warren Adler Short Story Contest. Our first contest’s theme, in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of The War of the Roses, dealt with break-ups and divorce and attracted hundreds of entries. The new contest will have as its overall theme New York City. Stories must have some New York City connection, through locale, reference, fantasy or sentiment and are limited to a maximum of 2,500 words. The contest is open to anyone in the world who writes in the English language. The driving force behind the contest is Mr. Adler’s belief that the short story has been a neglected genre for many decades and is poised for a comeback, which we are determined to encourage. We are currently working out a publishing partnership for the grand prize winner, along with $1,000 cash. Complete contest details will be posted on our website July 13. The contest will end January 15, 2008 and the winner will be announced in March to coincide with the publication of Mr. Adler’s fifth collection of short stories, New York Echoes.
