HSW 2017 Writers Contest Poker Pot Style-Winner Takes All

High Sierra Writers is proud to announce, the 2017 writing contest. Our chosen format this year is Short Story.  After much consideration, we thought this would allow more members to participate.

You may submit a maximum of 2 entries and the cost is $10.00 per entry. HSW is providing $100 seed money to start the pot, and ALL entry monies collected will be added to the pot. So, the more entries, the larger the pot will grow!

The Rules-

  1. Your story must be 3,000-4,000 words. (Not one word under 3,000, not one word over 4,000)
  2. All work must be original, no fan fiction.
  3. This contest is only open to paid members.
  4. Entries must be turned in at the November 11th
  5. A winner will be announced, and money awarded, at the December meeting.
  6. Your story must contain-
  7. A romantic element
  8. A fight scene
  9. A plot twist
  10. And my favorite, the 1st sentence of your story must be dialogue.
  11. Your story must have a cover page with-Name, title, genre and contact info.

There will only be one winner and that winner will receive the entire cash pot!
