Final days to nominate stories for the Million Writers Award

There are only a few days left to nominate stories for the storySouth Million WritersAward. We currently have more than 65 sets of nominations from editors of online magazines, and almost too many reader nominations to count. Remember, the deadline to make a nomination is February 28. Go here for reader nominations and here for editor nominations.

Thank to generous donations, we now have over $600 in total prize money, along with a $100 gift certificate from the great people at ThinkGeek. This means the prize money for the 2010 Million Writers Award will break down as follows:

  • $400 plus the $100 ThinkGeek gift certificate for the first place winner
  • $150 for the runner-up
  • $50 for the honorable mention (third place)

Of course, if more donations come in we'll bump those prize amounts even higher.
