Know a Writer Who Could Use a Monetary Award?

Well, duh, you probably do! So, listen up. There’s still time before the April 9th deadline to nominate your favorite qualifying story for the storySouth Million Writers Award. To qualify, a story of 1000+ words must have been first published online by a magazine (not self-published on a website) in the 2011 calendar year. Simple enough. Readers get to nominate one story, editors of magazines may nominate up to three stories. All the rules and such, along with some history of the award can be found here.

Before you ask, no, I have nothing that qualifies for this award. And yes, I did nominate a story already. So, hurry along and help out a friend, or yourself, gain some notice and perhaps to win a cash prize. Because after all, we’re in this writing game together.

Readers, writers, editors form an interdependent world. I don’t know about you, but I like to beautify my corner of the world. Supporting this prize (by nominating a writer’s story and/or donating a few bucks to the kitty) looks pretty beautiful to me.
