Our challenged-books-themed “I’m with the Banned!” short-fiction contest drew 52 entries, and we’re pleased to present 22 of our favorite stories here. Authors were required to include one of 20 prompts from frequently banned or challenged books (the full list is at RCReader.com/y/fiction) and were limited to 250 words beyond that.

We’ll be hosting a reading of winning and favorite entries at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 25, at the Bettendorf Public Library (2950 Learning Campus Drive). We hope to see you there to help celebrate Banned Books Week!

For our 2014 short-fiction contest – co-sponsored by the Bettendorf Public Library – we’re celebrating banned and challenged books. Our 20 prompts are all drawn from famous (and sometimes infamous) novels that school boards, governments, or other arbiters of taste and morality didn’t want people to read.

The deadline for entries is September 2.

We’ll publish winners and favorites in the September 18 issue of the River Cities’ Reader – just in time for Banned Books Week, which this year runs September 21 through 27.

We’re also planning an event featuring readings of winning and favorite stories at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 25, in the Bettendorf Room of the Bettendorf Public Library. More details will be announced later.

A 2013 photo-contest winner by Jess Ellis

The theme for the River Cities’ Reader 2014 photography contest is summer – in large part because we want to erase memories of our beastly winter.

The four categories are “Fun in the Sun,” “In the Garden,” “Heat Wave,” and “Summer Nights.”

The deadline for entries is May 9, and the rules are below. We plan to publish the winners in our May 29 issue.

(The photo above, by Jess Ellis, is a winner from our 2013 contest, incidentally.)

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

These are the first words of the Bible, and they were also one of 50 “great beginnings” that we offered our readers as opening lines for our 2013 short-fiction contest. (See the full list at RCReader.com/y/fiction.) We had lots of submission rules, but the other main criterion was a 250-word limit beyond the chosen prompt.

We received 134 entries, and we’re printing prize-winners and other favorites here.

Enjoy!
