Next year I’ll try to remember to post about this ahead of time, so that more people have a chance to enter the Poetry and Fiction writing contests.heron

Also, every year they do a publication, featuring the work of the contest winners and of the presenters. My short story, “You Can Gossip When You Own a Bar” is included in the 2016 Jambalaya Anthology. Here’s the link:
