It's the last month to send in Seán Ó Faoláin competition submissions. So get those short stories polished up and shipped off. Judge for this year is Tania Hershman.
First prize is 1500 euros (or USD/GBP equivalent) and if the winner comes to Cork to collect their prize, they'll be "lavished with hotel accommodation, meals, drinks and VIP access to the literary stars" at the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Festival (15-19 September 2010). How could you pass by that opportunity!?!
