2009 Hook Short Story Contest

It’s that time of year again! The Hook Short Story contest is underway. John Grisham will be judging again this year. Deadline for entries is February 3, 2009 — that’s not far off!

The grand-prize winner receives $700, second place $200, and third place, $100.

Next comes the fame. The grand prize-winning story will be published in the Hook in late March when lots of literary types are in town for the Virginia Festival of the Book.

In addition, all three winners will be officially saluted at the opening event of this year’s Festival (vabook.org) on Wednesday, March 18.
