Writers Circle sponsors fiction contest

The following item appears in today's print edition. I got a kick out of the fact that the contest's organizers refer to the late Mr. Daynard as the "Poet Laureate of Gloversville," which was a label first attached to him in this blog. At any rate, I hope they get a healthy variety of submissions from our local literati. Read on:
GLOVERSVILLE — The Writers Circle has announced its first fiction contest for area writers. The contest is being conducted in memory of Tim Daynard, a former member of the group who was known as the “Poet Laureate of Gloversville.”
The competition is open to area writers ages 16 and older. Short fiction pieces of 500 to 1,500 words will be considered. Only one submission per entrant will be considered.

The contest is being sponsored with support from Daynard’s parents, Carol and Frank Chichester, and the Gloversville Senior Center. For further information, call Morrison at 752-5865.
