Reality, amirite? How about a little fiction — a real little? The annual North Coast Journal Flash Fiction Contest might be just the bite-sized escapism we need. Make your story 99 words or fewer, not including the title, for a chance at small-scale literary fame and seeing your story in the Journal. Email up to three entries as attachments to our judges at email@example.com with your full name and contact information (the latter won’t be printed) by 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 30. The top picks will publish in December. How long is a 99-word story? Just about this long.
