Round Eleven is up and running and the clock is ticking toward their deadline, next Sunday, May 12. The theme for this round is Finders Keepers. The rules are as always, short stories of 600 words or less that can be read aloud in three minutes. The judge for this round is Karen Russell. He advice for writers is “go dark, go weird, go comic.” Prizes include signed copies of Russell’s three novels and publication in the fall issue of The Paris Review. And, of course, bragging rights.
