Announcing Parenthood Week -- Seeking Stories

Well, the Fun Flash Fiction Contest has been a tremendous success and it has been so much fun reading the entries as they come in! We're judging over the weekend and posting the winning entry Monday, so check in and GOOD LUCK to everyone who entered. Don't forget to those still sitting on the fence: the deadline is Friday at midnight EST. You still have time!

NEXT ON THE CALENDAR: Parenthood Week -- March 22 - 26

I'm calling all writers to flex their literary muscles and pen a 1000 word or less fiction short story with parenting at the heart of its theme. It can be funny, sad, reflective -- ANYTHING with parenting in its story will be accepted. OR maybe you already have a story sitting around. Just remember to please keep it clean (no excessive bad language or violence, etc).

Send your submission to: and write PARENTHOOD in the subject line. You can paste it into the email or attach as a Word file. Also add a short bio and website/blogsite addresses.
