Writing Contest At Esquire

I hope everyone does this contest and if you win, you'd better bring me!(seriously) By the way I've read that short short by Hemingway before and it's devastating. Here's the link again...http://www.esquire.com/fiction/short-short-fiction-contest-2011?click=pp

Cool contest, very challenging. I love Hemingway's short stuff. Thanks for posting!

I actually teach this in a writing course and it is really interesting. After we talk about Hemingway's version we look at some that came from Wired Magazine ... although they aren't all gold, they are fun to look at. Then I have them write their own. I also have them write a few paragraphs and reduce it down to as little as possible... a few manage to get it to one or two sentences.
