Tonight at 11:59 pm Eastern time was supposed to be the end of the public vote for this year's storySouth Million Writers Award. However, the storySouth website went down for nearly a day last week, resulting in much anguish and emailing to me about the inability to vote.
This year we have nearly $1000 in cash prizes for the top three winners, along with
- A $100 gift certificate from ThinkGeek for the overall winner;
- Free books from Dzanc Books for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners (Dzanc Books also generously contributed to the overall prize money);
- A $50 gift card to Powells.com for the third place winner, sponsored by writingprompts.us.
