Wild Violet Monthly Contests Launched

I've just posted the first topic for our new monthly contest at Wild Violet.

In related news, I'm searching for people to serve as a panel to pare down the entries to a Top 10, which will then be presented in a poll for readers to choose a winner.

I'm also in need of judges for the 2009 Wild Violet Fiction and Poetry contests. There are about 20 entries of each, and I will need a ruling by our summer issue (due out in August). The requirements for those judges are a little higher: I'm looking for someone with at least some demonstrated credentials (whether it be a poetry chapbook, writing degree, affiliation with a lit magazine, or anything else applicable). In exchange, you will get an official bio on our site where you can cross-promote any of your personal projects or Web sites.

Please comment below if you're interested or e-mail me at
