Came across Aerogramme Writer’s Studio site which is chock full of advice, tips, resources and wanted to share their post on an upcoming short story contest:
“Boston Review is now accepting entries for the Aura Estrada Short Story Contest 2017.
Founded in 1975, Boston Review is one of America’s most prestigious literature and politics magazines. Past contributors include Saul Bellow, Jhumpa Lahiri and John Updike.
Boston Review’s Aura Estrada Short Story Contest is open to all writers, regardless of citizenship or publication history. The winner of the contest will receive $1500 and have his or her work published in the July/August 2017 issue of Boston Review. The runners-up stories may also be published.”
This weekend, January 8-12, the American Library Association Mid-Winter Conference kicks off in Boston, MA…and one local posted on the event FB page that visiting librarians could – among other culturally unique activities – participate in Sunday’s annual “No Pants Subway Ride” Fortunately, or unfortunately I’ll only be attending on Friday. Sounds like a joke to us country mice heading down to the big city, but folks assure me it’s for real. Follow this link if you want to find out more about the event or its 2002 origins from Improv Everywhere.
