This morning, the APRIL Festival announced something fun: their first-ever writing contest! And the Seattle Review of Books is coming along for the ride:

The APRIL 2016 contest is simple: submit a written piece of any genre or form, 400–500 words in length, before the December 12 deadline. The APRIL team will select five finalists, with the winner to be selected by The Seattle Review of Books. The winning piece will be published on The Seattle Review of Books and performed during the APRIL 2016 festival and the winning author will be awarded a $100 honorarium. Please note that this contest is limited to those individuals who have NOT read at an APRIL event before.

There's no fee to enter, so send your best stuff along. We're very much looking forward to reading your work, and to publishing your work, and to attending your reading. Read all the details here.
