So a lot of you seem intrigued by the contest, judging by the traffic on the Pig Latin contest page. But not enough writers are submitting.
It could be that you’re all a bunch of procrastinatin’ scribblers, or it could be you feel that $20 dollars (the prize for the winning entry) doesn’t go a long way in today’s economy. If the latter is the case, then allow me to point out a few things you could purchase with this kind of money. They include, but are not limited to:
a vending machine smorgasbord, 5 happy meals, a slightly broken television, a night in a hostel, and this.
* If you are keen on any of these exciting possibilities, here’s a refresher on the rules:
Write a humorous poem or flash fiction in Pig Latin. Try not to exceed 250 words (we will consider anything under 500 words, though). Submission deadline is on Sunday, August 31st.
Contest is free to enter.
Here’s a handy how-to-write Pig Latin guide in case anyone needs a refresher.
Best poem/flash will be published on Back Hair Advocate.
We’ll also send the winner a crisp $20 dollar bill in the mail.
