Hemingway-esque May 11, 2011 - May 18, 2011
Reading and Deliberating
If you read Hemingway and feel you have a style similar to his, this is the contest for you.
Send your best short story in a general literary format.
Remember themes like Hemingway's Iceberg Theory, where 90% of the story is below the surface.
Read one of his short stories and mimic it. Brief Happy life of Francis Macomber is great. Or any of the Nick Adams Stories.
Please don't send me a rant, or word vomit. I have a B.A. in creative writing and If you'd like I can send you a revision and I'll allow you to edit and send me back a final piece. Just no journal entries. That's not what this is about.
