I am happy to announce the fourth annual Short Story Contest. The first three years were full of surprises, and great stories. Volume 3 was distributed to over 1,000 Texas Libraries for FREE as part of the DEAR Texas Literacy Program that supports Title 1 schools and libraries.
This exciting annual contest is open to any Texan that has a short story to tell. Great prizes are given to the top three winners of each genre, including printed copies of the anthology, memberships, and cash prizes.
