Competition: Literary Humor Contest.

Genre(s): Prose Humor.

Welcome to the back pages of the Gilbert Wesley Purdy Online Bibliography. Rather than merely use a few pages for the Bibliography I have decided to begin posting calls for submissions again. I will be posting information about literary and arts competitions, as well. So you may want to subscribe to the Bibliography RSS (or Atom) in order to get the latest information. If you wish to have your own call for submissions or competition posted, contact me at gwpurdy@yahoo.com. A confirming link may be required in order to post your notice. I will include all notices the I have time to post.

Oh, and I hope you will stop in at the Hyperlinked Internet Bibliography page, as well. Perhaps you will find something of interest there.

Comments: "we are seeking spurious sequels to works of literature or nonfiction, complete with a one-line description, e,g,: S. Grant: Stately, plump Buck Mulligan is elected president of the United States. Charlotte’s Website: www.SomePig.com :) Regurgitates, Reloads, and Remains: A slightly edgier grammar manual. Conversely, if you hold to the notion that every great tale has its antecedent, and every indelible fictional character has his or her predecessor, you may also submit preposterous prequels..."

Contact: Please send entries (no more than three per person, please!) with indications as to whether they are spurious sequels or preposterous prequels to fiction@chronogram.com or Humor Contest, Chronogram, 314 Wall Street, Kingston, NY 12401.
