The Texas Observer Short Story Prize: "We at The Texas Observer love a good story. Of course, the stories we've published over the past half-century-mostly hard-hitting investigative pieces-have been depressingly true. Help us change that. Send us your best original short fiction for the first annual Texas Observer Short Story Prize. The winner gets a fat check and publication in the 2011 Summer Books issue.
GRAND PRIZE $1,000 and publication in 2011 Summer Books issue
