The Leyla Beban Young Authors Foundation is happy to announce that we are now accepting submissions for the '$1000 for 1000 Words' fiction writing contest. The contest is open to current middle and high school students. Two $1000 scholarships will be awarded, one each to the best middle school and high school submission, as well as $100 cash prizes to the best in each grade 6-12. The piece must be fiction and must be *exactly* 1000 words. Winners and 'honorable mentions' will be published in the upcoming literary journal Bluefire.
For contest rules, to submit a piece of fiction, or to find out about the foundation, please go to www.blue4beban.org or email us with questions at email@example.com.
