I'm currently putting together the first issue of greensburg magazine, and we've got a definite trend towards articles about dumpster diving, thrift store shopping, and other fringe practices. I'd like to challenge you to write a flash fiction story of 300 words of less about the art of dumpster diving.
Whether you like the practice or not, I'd like to read what you have to say. We'll publish the best entries in the upcoming issue of the magazine, which will glean for you a contributor copy plus a whole lot of goodwill. Further notes: the theme is "salvaged love" and the first issue comes out on Valentine's day.
(Thanks, Teri of EditRed, for the inspiration!)
