Telling Tales / It’s not about word counts, but words that count. We’ve listened to our readers for months now, who’ve been asking us to bring back the literary contests that have been dropped by so many other publications. We feel that now is the perfect time to say we’ve heard you, and here it is–The First Annual Honolulu Weekly Poetry & Fiction Contest.
The contest is open to anyone who lives in Hawaii; age is of no matter; and entries must be emailed no later than Tue., Oct. 11. Please copy your stories or poems into the email. Attachments will not be opened therefore they will not be read.
We will accept a maximum word count of 1,200 words for fiction and 101 words for flash fiction and poetry. There is no prompt, and we’re open to any style and genre.
The reward? Come on, we’re the Weekly…but we will be publishing the winners’ work in our Halloween Issue (Oct. 26) and our Winter Books issue (Nov. 2). Judges and winners will be announced on our website.
