Novella contest

All of you downtrodden, dissed novella writers, here's your chance for some time in the sun.

Yes it costs $25 to enter.
No, that doesn't mean it's a scam.

oh sure, it figures... my 50K novel is too long for this and too short to do anything else with... and with global warming, who needs kindling?

Miam of Ohio? Cool! Sometimes called the "Harvard of the Midwest" but I s'pect that's somewhat subjective.

Miami was a University when Florida was still with the Spanish. It's an old respected university!

Miami of Ohio "the Harvard of the Midwest"? Where on Earth have you heard that? It's in the MAC, which requires only a pulse for attendance. I should know, I went to a MAC school and I have a pulse. It's around here somewhere . . .

I've heard Michigan referred to that way. At least they have the medical school and law school and the big endowment.

uisce: perhaps with some judicious cutting, you can pare down to the 40k max.

Wouldn't ya know it. That's my alma mater. Phooey!

And it's compared to Harvard because it has a pretty campus, I think. ;-)

Miami University is extremely well-respected among Ohio colleges and universities. Also, as someone who knows a thing or two about Ohio state schools, you may be able to gain ENTRANCE with just a pulse to almost any state school, but just like anywhere else, if your grades start to falter, you will get kicked out.

Hahaha Miss Snark - more plugs! Where's Johnny boy to tell you off? I bet all this time you've been running the blog, just so you can win our trust...

And I repeat: "Things we hate most?"

Assholes (like "haha anon" and Johnny boy) who don't get the blog.

Um... I was joking. Possibly a stupid joke - I'd just read the post about Miss Snark being snared. Of course it's not a bloody plug, idiot.

Namecalling, children? Tsk, tsk. Miss Snark will scold you for that.

That contest sounds awesome. Too bad I don't have anything the right length...

Miss Snark, This is great! I don't know if you've ever heard of this, but I've been participating in what is effectively a novella contest for years now (this Labor Day will be my 5th entry).

It's the International 3 Day Novel Contest! Entrants register in advance (I think it's $60 this year) and then you have to write a novel (a novella, really) over the course of the Labor Day weekend and send in a printed version within a week after labor day. All you can do before the contest is write an outline.

If you're interested, go here to answer all your other questions.

I highly recommend it!
