Carroll County writers have a chance to win $100 in a Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the county chapter of Maryland Writers. The contest is open to residents 16 and older. There is no cost to enter. Entries must be received by July 31.
In addition to the $100 prize, the winner will receive a year’s membership in Maryland Writer’s Association, publication in the annual Carroll County Chapter of the Maryland Writers’ Associatio flash fiction booklet “InShort,” and in a proposed future anthology.
