With your entry, indicate which 2 of the 3 people below you would like to receive feedback from if you win.
The runner up will receive feedback from the person not picked by the winner.
Stories should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be announced April 30th. Stories can be submitted as a document attached to your email or in the body of the email itself. There are no special formatting requirements. Multiple entries are allowed.

Each person is likely to have quite a different focus for their feedback, and the opportunity to compare feedback from two professionals should provide some useful insights and ideas for your story and for your fiction writing in general. Good luck.
