And We Were Hungry Short Story Contest

I received an email from these nice folk asking me to give them a shout-out on the blog. While I can't vouch for them, I have no connection to the magazine or the competition, it does sound interesting, and with no entry fee and a large prize, I will leave it up to you to decide!

AndWeWereHungry, a new online arts & literary magazine, seeks literary prose (fiction, nonfiction and essay), poetry, photography and artwork for debut issue & calls for entries to its short story competition!
The debut issue and short story contest (four winners shall share a total prize fund of $5000), is sponsored by "Ashes & Snow" artist Gregory Colbert. Debut issue & contest submission theme or creative prompt is "And we were hungry. . . .," or more broadly, "HUNGER." For after all haven't we all experienced hunger? And isn't it, in the words of Ray Bradbury, that very "lack that gives us inspiration?"
Consideration for contest's top prize of $2000 is reserved for stories that connect the theme with nature. Contributors are encouraged to otherwise freely interpret the theme. Submission deadline is March 31, 2013. Submission Guidelines, more info and themes & deadlines for future issues are found at While there are no contest entry or submissions reading fees, we are not a paying market at this time.
