Million Writers Award Update

Things are still chugging along for the release of the top ten stories for the 2011 storysouth Million Writers Award. Two of the final judges has already turned in their selections while the other judge – who is the one holding up the whole effin process – is almost done.

Unfortunately, I'm the judge holding everything up. All I can say is that I'm trying my best to finish reading all 158 notable stories and I should be done by the end of this month, at which time the finalists will be posted.

As a reminder, the prizes for this year's award are:

  • First place: $600 plus the $100 gift certificate from ThinkGeek
  • Runner-up: $200
  • Honorable mention/third place: $100
