The Tennessee Williams Exhibit announces a short story writing contest as part of the 106th birthday celebration of the great American 20th century playwright and Key West resident.
Writers are asked to submit a fictional short story of between 1400 and 4000 words along with a registration form before the March 8, 2017 deadline. Registration fees are $20 for adults and $10 for students. Publication in an on-line journal is possible.
