New York Magazine’s Political Fictions Contest

political-fiction-sidebar.gifSick of political memoirs yet? Get revenge at New York magazine with the Political Fictions Contest.

Between now and Dec. 7, the magazine is accepting short stories, movie treatments, or mini one-act plays about real life political figures–Washington DC fan fiction. The contest will help promote the new issue’s short political fictions by writers like Mary Gaitskill and Paul Rudnick. The best stories will be featured on the website. Judges will pick three winners for prizes.

Here’s a list of the fabulous prizes: The first-place winner will receive a one-night stay at Washington, D.C.’s Mayflower Hotel, site of Client No. 9′s infamous dalliance with Ashley Dupre. Second place: dinner for two at Blue Hill, Barack and Michelle Obama‘s date-night destination in May. And third place: a copy of Going Rogue, by Sarah Palin–plus a one-month membership to Playgirl.com, of course.”
