The Do Some Damage crew is sponsoring the AJ (Bill) Hayes Memorial Writing Contest in honor of their friend who recently passed away. They are looking for flash fiction stories up to 1000 words in the genres of crime fiction, mystery, noir, and suspense. They're also accepting poetry. Only one big requirement, you have to feature Bill as a character in some way. Prizes are $100, $50, and $25 plus publication of the winners on the DSD blog, at the Thrillers, Killers, and Chillers site, and in the next issue of Needle magazine.
The deadline is June 1.
There are no fees to enter, but they are looking for donations to fund the contest and anything over $200 will be donated to Bill's family. You will find all the details here.
