‘Flash Fiction’ writing contest

In honor of this year’s Big Jewish Community Read program, the St. Louis Rabbinical Association and the St. Louis Jewish Light are sponsoring a “Flash Fiction” writing contest, open to everyone.  Flash Fiction is a form of creative writing also called micro fiction — the goal is to capture a character or story or setting in very short form. For this local contest, the word limit is 300.   The only “prompt” for the contest is relevance to a Jewish theme.

The winning entry and two runner-up selections will be published in the Jewish Light.

Entries are due by Dec. 15. Send them to: St. Louis Rabbinical Association, c/o Steve Sorkin, 36 Queensbrook Place, St. Louis, Mo. 63132; or by email to [email protected].
