Since 2006, the Bethlehem Writers Group has been showcasing short fiction through its online literary journal, the Bethlehem Writers Roundtable (now a paying publication -- $20 for featured stories, $10 for other stories, and $5 for poetry -- issued quarterly), and through its terrific anthologies, which include:
Each year, the Group holds a short story contest with a celebrity writer judge. Three winning stories receive cash prizes. First place is usually published in the Group's anthology and the other winners and honorable mentions often are included in the online journal.
I'm proud to say that my story, "Long in the Tooth," was a third place prize winner the year that Hank Phillippi Ryan was the celebrity judge. It's also included in the Let It Snow anthology.
If you haven't already discovered the Group or its Roundtable, please check it out. You'll discover some delightful reading.
