I would like to remind writers that most short story contests are taking place right now, at Fall time.  I enter at least three of them every Fall: 1) CBC Short Story Prize by the Canadian Broadcast Corporation; 2) Writer’s Digest Short Story Competition by Writer’s Digest; and, Canadian Tales Short Story Competition by Red Tuque Publishing.  However, there are many more contests out there.  So, dust off the stories that are hiding in the drawers and participate!  They may be winning stories waiting to make a name for you.  Good luck everyone!
