Last night I was boozin’ with Hot Metal Bridge Editor Steve Gillies (not to be confused with Dzanc’s Steven Gillis) at the Pittsburgh Noir launch, and he was practically crying into his glass, begging everybody at the table to tell people about HMB‘s summer contests. So, directly from their site:
“Attention poets, fiction and non-fiction writers! There is just over a week to enter our summer writing contests in all genres with deadlines approaching on June 1st. One winner and one runner up will be chosen from each genre. Winner will receive $50, publication in the ‘Best of Hot Metal Bridge‘ print edition forthcoming this summer, and two contributor copies of said print edition. Go here for the details and to submit.”
I highly encourage everyone reading to enter this. As you may know, I was once an editor at Hot Metal Bridge along with Geoff Peck, and we put together a pretty cool fiction contest (read the winner here). So friends, check this shit out. The judges are Allison Amend, Peter Trachtenberg, and Kate Northrop. Win that money!
