Literati!  Our six finalists have been sharpening their pencils or dipping their quills  for the chance to bring Horace home as the winner of our Wingnuts contest. Here is all you need to do…

Up to 750 words. Choose early as you begin whether you want to make us think or make us feel.  I need a good cry and I need a good laugh…How about you?

Your story must be submitted by June 20th.  The winner will be announced at The Third Annual Editor-in-Chief Surprise Birthday Party and Wet T Shirt Contest, to be held June 22nd  at the Hacienda in Oceanside of our good friend and author Victor Villasenor (www.victorvillasenor.com). We intend to podcast the event and will update you on how to participate.
