just announced the rules of their 2010 micro fiction competition, Stories for the End of the Decade
. Here's the gist of it: a 100-word story about the decade that's ending or the one about to start, somehow pertaining to architecture, design and urbanism. The deadline for submissions (to be sent to this fellow
) is December 7.
The editors' favorites will be published in icon's February 2010 issue, and the grand champ (chosen we're-not-sure-how) gets a free one-year subscription and a copy of Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice. So start writing! (But take your time because, you know, it's just 100 words, how hard could it be?)
