Fiction writers, put your pens away, click "save" on the story you've been trying furiously to finish, and close out of your word processing app. The time for writing, editing, and spell checking is over. Take a deep breath, know you've done your best, exhale, and click "submit."
That's right, today at 5:00 pm is the deadline for spring submissions to the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction. Winners will be announced later this summer.
