The 2008 Creative Loafing fiction contest is officially over, and so are my hopes and dreams. Just kidding, sort of. Two of my friends claimed first and second place. Right now that list of names is on the DL, but I’m told I can give away names as of Monday the 7th. So check back then. As usual, there will be a celebration. From an email I got from CL:
Regardless, we¹d still like to invite you to the Fiction Contest party on
Thursday, Jan. 10, at 7 p.m. at Eyedrum (Suite 8, 290 MLK Jr. Drive SE,
Atlanta, GA 30312; 404.522.0655, www.eyedrum.org).
The party, which is free to the public, is a great opportunity to meet other
writers in the community, listen to readings of the three winning entries,
and enjoy some live music and refreshments.We¹ll have beer on sale, with food and beverages provided by Café Intermezzo.
Aside from the readings, we¹ll have appearances and book
signings by our panel of judges (David Fulmer, Joshilyn Jackson and Fiona
Zedde). (Bound to Be Read Books will be on hand to supply copies of the
authors¹ works, but purchases are not necessary; bring your own copies if
you have ¹em.)We¹re also happy to welcome the ambient sounds of Duet for Theramin and Lap Steel. (Check out their music at http://duetonline.net.)
Please come help Creative Loafing (along with the Chattahoochee Review)
support Atlanta¹s burgeoning literary scene. We think you¹ll like what you
