Dialogue Contest

FYI — I just heard about a strange sounding writing competition — The Bartleby Snopes Dialogue Only contest. Take a look at: www.bartlebysnopes.com — The rules? You have to compose a short story entirely of dialogue. Use as many characters as you want. It must be under 2000 words. And no he said, she said — just the dialogue.

Interesting, no?  They say, “The winning entry will be the story that most effectively uses dialogue to deliver a powerful and engaging story.” If I had more time I would be tempted to enter myself. I love a weird challenge. I believe the entrance fee is only about $10. The winner last year was awarded several hundred dollars, I believe. Good luck to anyone game.

    That sounds fascinating. I suspect that Shakespeare would have won easily.
