Word Limit: Up to 305 words

Deadline: Monday, November 13, 2011 by 6pm

Subject/Content: According to the contest site:

“Submissions can be fiction or non-fiction, poetic prose or prosaic poetry — the creative sky’s the limit!”

But I would assume that since the prizes have a South Florida flavor, I’m assuming that content featuring the people, places or subjects of interest to South Floridians would have a better chance of winning.

Prizes: According to the contest site:

The grand-prize winner will get a grab bag of goodies during a dinner with Christine DiMattei, afternoon anchor of WLRN-Miami Herald News. Four (4) runners-up will receive a copy of Tigertail, A South Florida Annual: Florida Flash, edited by Lynne Barrett and published by Tigertail Productions, and “Miami Stories: Volume One,” a live hour of true stories from WLRN Under the Sun and Lip Service.

Again, looks like these prizes have local flair, so I’d say only enter this if you live in the area, have lived in the area, or just looking for another excuse to visit South Florida.
