I'm working on a piece for Esquire Magazine's fiction contest.
Length is cut off at 4,000 words. So, no more than 20 double-spaced pages. Must be submitted by August 1st.
The payoff is pretty nice. But Esquire is a nationally published magazine, and I imagine they'll receive many submissions. Victory won't be easy.
But you know what they say. Fortune favors the brave.
Any potential readers out there? I'll try to get a rough copy done by the end of the week. I'd need comments a week and a half or so after the initial draft is complete.
