Short Story Contest, Spring 2009

Welcome to Anthrofiction Network’s short story contest for spring 2009.

There’s a new schedule and I’ve renamed the quarters. The names now reflect the season in which judging takes place. Although it’s winter as I write this it’ll be spring when it’s time to judge this quarter’s contest. Last quarter was the fourth of 2008 and this quarter is the first of 2009, so nothing’s been skipped.
