The Short Story Contest theme!

Here it is, the long-awaited theme of the Stories in the North Short Story Contest. Drumroll….and – the envelope, please!

Summer Outdoors

There it is – write what you will, romance, a ghost story or a fishing trip, science fiction, fantasy or slice-of-life, humour or horror, it doesn’t matter. Just make sure that summer outdoors is an integral part of the story. It doesn’t have to be the central thing, but it has to be more than a mention.

We have no lower word limit, but please no more than 5,000 words. If you live in ALgoma for any part of the year, and are not part of the Stories in the North Board, you are eligible. Entries must be postmarked by July 31st, 2013.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your wordprocessors!
