The 2008 Dwarf Star winners have been announced... congratulations to Greg Beatty, Sonya Taaffe, and Ann K. Schwader! There were a lot of good poems to pick from this year. Deborah Kolodji and Stephen Wilson had their work cut out for them.
On the Premises holds writing contests revolving around a theme or idea. The current contest seems to lend itself well to horror stories, and there's no entry fee. The premise is: "One or more characters encounter someone, something, or some place from their past that they had good reason to believe they would never encounter again." Entries must be between 1000-5000 words, and have to be in by January 31st. Read the full guidelines here.
