Hyphen Editor Neelanjana Banerjee reports that due to excellent response to the 2010 Asian American Short Story Contest, the contest deadline has been extended to April 12, 2010.
As a reminder, the contest is open to all writers of Asian descent living in the United States and Canada, and there is no required theme. This year’s judges are Alexander Chee and Jaed Coffin. Ten finalists will receive a one-year subscription to Hyphen and a one-year membership to Asian American Writers’ Workshop, and one grand prize winner will also receive $1,000 and publication in Hyphen.

Happy writing, and don’t forget, the new deadline is April 12, 2010.
