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.
