Have a Great Story? I'll be the Judge of That!

Do you have a short work that you think is great? Something ready for prime time? I’ll be the judge of that.

No, really. I’m one of the fiction judges for the 2011 Maryland Writers’ Association Short Works Contest. Enter your best work—but act fast! The deadline is February 6. Here are details from the MWA.
