Mr. Jordan is hosting the "Spirit of Short Fiction" contest as part of Bouchercon 2011!! He's looking for short crime stories up to 5000 words. The stories must take place in St. Louis and contain a mention of BBQ. The deadline is May 1. The winner receives $100, publication in the Bouchercon program book and 2 Bouchercon 2011 passes. You can find all the details at http://bouchercon2011.blogspot.com/2011/01/spirit-of-short-fiction-contest.html
Something I missed on my first read through. This contest is open to unpublished writers under the age of 18.
And a hat tip to Brian Lindenmuth for passing along the link!
