Nominations open for 2009 storySouth Million Writers Award

The sixth annual Million Writers Award is now open. Complete information on how to nominate stories is available here. The reader and editor nomination process, along with regular updates on the award, will appear through the blog and website of Jason Sanford, who runs the award. The list of notable stories of the year, and the top ten stories, will appear on this storySouth page.

Due to the economic downturn, the award no longer has a monetary sponsor. To compensate, Jason Sanford is putting up $50 of his own money as prize money, while storySouth's new publisher, Spring Garden Press, is putting up another $50. However, they'd like to give the winner more, so please consider a $5 or $10 donation to increase the amount of prize money. To donate, please go here.
