10:47 am - Short Story Contest (links)
Relief Journal & the Faith-in-Fiction blog are teaming up to sponser a third rendition of their "Daily Sacrament" Short Story Contest

Andre Dubus writes of cooking an omelet and it becomes a holy moment. Marilynne Robinson takes the acts of baptism and communion out of their churchly garb and gives them new resonance and depth. Inspired by examples like these, the "Daily Sacrament" short story contest will challenge you to explore the everyday in light of the eternal--or the sacred in the surroundings of the commonplace.

Reading Period: January 1 - March 15, 2007
Prize: Winner will receive $250 and publication in Relief Journal.
Runners-up: Published on the faith*in*fiction blog.
Word Limit: 10,000

I figured there were people on my flist who might be interested in this. I know I'm tempted to write something--it's been a long time since I tried to write a short story that wasn't fanfic. And this, this is something I might be able to do (it's like a ficathon prompt, almost).

Also, I'm thinking about buying a year's subscription to Relief Journal; I really like what they're trying to do, and it might be worth the money.

Well, of course it is, but there aren't enough stories written about it, are there?
