First Friday fiction contest: March 4 deadline
WildBird knows that the birding community includes many talented writers, and we hope that they'll share their talent for wordsmithery in the First Friday fiction contest. Here are the contest details:
* You submit a 500-word fictional story about birds, birders or birding.
* The story includes four elements: a setting, a character or characters, a conflict and a resolution.
* The story does not anthropomorphize birds.
* You send your tale to wildbirdATbowtieinc.com before 5 p.m. PST on the first Thursday of the month, and you include your mailing address.
The author of the winning entry gets to receive a recently published book, such as Andrew Zuckerman's "Bird" or Don Grussing's "The Seasons of the Robin."
You'll find the previous winners' tales in the sidebar to the right. Will you join the contest this week and earn a spot in the sidebar?
