The other day Katherine Tomlinson emailed me a link to The B. Envelope site. This site runs three contests looking for stories about minority characters. The current series is looking for stories about African American characters but you don't have to be African American to enter. There is a scenario posted that each story must use as a prompt.
The first category is the mini envelope which is free to enter but the deadline for this one has already passed.
The second is the grand envelope which offers a grand prize of $1000 with a $15 entry fee for a short story of 3,000 to 7,000 words. The deadline for this is fast approaching - so short notice.
And the third is the fellowship envelope which is for a novel in progress. Grand prize is $10,000. The entry fee varies from $35 to $65 depending on when you decide to enter.
You can check out all the details here.
