New York‘s Call For Political Fiction

palinbook23.jpgIf you just so happen to have a funny story of political fiction knocking around your hard drive, we have just the contest for you.

Following their political fiction package in this week’s issue — published to coincide with Sarah Palin‘s questionably factual memoir — New York magazine is asking readers to submit their own short stories, movie treatments, one-act plays or whatever you like — 1,000 words or so about political figures.

The best submissions will be published on NYMag.com all week, and the top three winners will get prizes like a night at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., where Eliot Spitzer famously met Ashley Dupre; dinner for two at Obama date spot Blue Hill; and a copy of Going Rogue and a one-month membership to Playgirl.com.

The contest ends December 7, so you better get to writing.
