Travel to the Rodeo

Howdy Folks! Yep…it’s time once again to saddle up, polish your boots and grab your pen too: the Rodeo is back! Five, 99 word flash fiction contests, each with a unique prompt, running weekly through October at Carrot Ranch.

Open to all, no entry fee and a cash prize for the winner.

Thrilled to lead my contest, ‘Travel with a Twist’, which opens October 17.

Details of this, my fellow judges and every contest,  including Lead Buckaroo Charli Mill’s TUFF (The Ultimate Flash Fiction), a free-write challenge remaining for September 25, posted below.

I’ll re-blog each contest’s opening day here at the Summerhouse.

So watch this space, pack your bags and get ready to Travel to the Rodeo…with a twist, of course.

Carrot Ranch Literary Community

Sherri Matthews has kept her feet in the stirrups at Carrot Ranch while riding hard to revise her memoir. She’s one of our premier memoir writers who also pens a hapless village werewolf character who first debuted here in flash fiction. Her fiction can turn a dark twist as deftly as a rodeo bronc.

About Sherri Matthews

Sherri once worked in the medical and legal fields. One day the office closed, she got laid off and she praised the heavens for the chance at last to write her book. Some years later, 'Stranger In A White Dress', a memoir, is ready for submission. Published along the way in magazines, anthologies and on her blog, Sherri writes about her travels, nature and the process of memoir. She also shares snippets of her life as a Brit 'Mom' who raised her children in California, as an advocate and carer for her adult youngest diagnosed at eighteen with Asperger's Syndrome and stories of her dad's lifelong journey from prison to the streets and back again. She is a regular contributor to 'Carrot Ranch', an online literary community. Today, Sherri lives in England with her hubby, Aspie, two black cats and a very grumpy Bunny. Writing stories from the past, making sense of today and giving hope for tomorrow.
