Last manuscript standing wins in Broken Pencil writing contest

There seem to be many variations on writing contests, but one laden with irony is the Broken Pencil Indie Writers Deathmatch, a readers-choice contest in which one story emerges triumphant in what the magazine about 'zines says is "culture's bloodiest fiction contest". Plus, of course, it helps to build both the exchequer and readership as entries are $20 and include a one-year sub to Broken Pencil. The deadline for entry is December 31.

A short list of eight finalists is winnowed down by readers' online votes and the winning story is printed in the magazine and the writer receives $300. Second, third and fourth place finalists will also be published, at the magazine's standard payment.
