    Great list. The Dzanc link doesn’t work. This one worked for me.

    Thanks for this.

    This is a great list, thank you! My favorite short story/fiction author right now is Mike Ronny. He mixes humor with everyday life…anyhow, I definitely need to let him know about these contests. If anyone is interested in checking out his work: Thanks again, l really appreciate this blog.
