All the latest news, ideas, and opinions from Denver's Independent Literary Center: lighthousewriters.org
Thanks to a generous grant from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, we’re happy to announce a contest run in conjunction with Stories on Stage (storiesonstage.org) that is open to all members of the August Lighthouse short story (or Online Fiction) workshops. Each entry should fit the general topic: “Nobody likes a smartass.” Stories on Stage will select the winning entry based on their program needs and various other subjective criteria. The writer whose story they select receives a $200 cash prize and the honor of hearing his or her story read by a professional actor in a Stories on Stage (http://storiesonstage.org) performance. The performance will also feature actors reading short fiction by Tobias Wolff, Lorrie Moore, and Flannery O’Connor, and will take place at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts Jones Theater on Saturday, September 26, 2009. Shows will run at 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM. Tickets are normally $25, but a limited number of $15 discounted tickets are available to Lighthouse members.
Deadline & Important Dates
• Deadline for submissions for the contest ($200 prize plus performance): Saturday, September 5.
• The performance with Stories on Stage will take place on Saturday, September 26, 5 PM & 8 PM shows. Tickets available here.
