Here at Sacred Chickens Blog, we have, strangely, come into a small amount of money. Let’s not discuss how it happened or what we had to do to get it. Water under the bridge. Being the generous souls that we are, we’ve been wondering how to share it with you. After much discussion and, truth be told, a momentary bout of fisticuffs, we have come to the conclusion that we should have a contest with actual cash prizes. We had some other prizes in mind, but our legal team advised against all of them. Submitted works should be unnerving, unsettling, questioning the status quo. Other than that, feel free to exercise your creativity in whatever capacity you see fit.
There are a few things you should know. First of all, there is no entry fee. We understand that writing is not always as ...remunerative...as one might like. So as not to cut into your beer, ice cream, or therapy funds, we're going to cut you a break on that.
The prizes will be $500 for first prize, $200 for second, and $100 for third.
Julie, Jarad, and Morty will not be judging this contest. Friend of the chickens and award winning writer, Jeff Weddle, author of Bohemian New Orleans, and When Giraffes Flew, will make the final calls. In fact, you will be submitting your stories to a third party, who will then submit them blind to Jeff.
We will publish our winners but we never hold onto any copyrights. Those are yours.
If cash prizes interest you, you can follow the link below. If cash prizes don't interest you, what the heck is wrong with you? Win it and give it away to charity if you like.
