Scribophile: New Beginnings writing contest

Scribophile has launched the New Beginnings writing contest. They're accepting short stories (up to 3000 words) featuring the theme "new beginnings." First prize is a $100 gift card to Amazon.com plus credit for 3000 words of professional editing service from Elite Editing. 2nd place is a $50 Amazon.com gift card.

No entry fee, but it looks as if you need to become part of the Scribophile critique community AND post some critiques first before you're allowed to enter.

Deadline is March 31, 2010.

For more info, see the contest info page.

Do you have to be 18 or older?

Just got here and I am already too late! Will you be having any other contests. I am a very begining writer. However, I have been on the planet for quite awhile, and I do have stories to tell....how do I get started? Help!

This would have been a great contest for me to enter, because I am reinventing myself, and this is my "New Begining." Sorry I missed it.
