UMFK writing contest is underway...

October 11, 2011


The University of Maine at Fort Kent’s Presidential Lecture Series committee is hosting a writing contest entitled, Very Short Shorts.  The committee is searching for submissions from UMFK students, staff, faculty, and alumni, or community members.

Are you up to the challenge of writing a very short story, which can be read in three minutes or less? If so, then send your very best original fiction short story in 600 words or less.  
To enter, simply send your original never-before-published very short story. The deadline to submit your typed, double-spaced entry is by 12 noon on Thursday, November 17, 2011.
Please include a cover sheet with your contact information, including name, e-mail, phone number, along with a 100-word biography. E-mail submissions must include “Very Short Shorts” as the subject heading. The contest limits one entry per person.
All submissions will be read by a jury. The three winning entries will be included in the 2011-12 Presidential Lecture Series ChapBook, which will be released at the UMFK Scholars’ Symposium on Friday, April 20, 2012.
Winners of the contest will be announced on Friday, December 9, 2011. Send your entry to Diane Gagne, division of nursing administrative assistant, by e-mail at:
