You can win a free corset from one of the best corset shops on the web by writing a Steampunk Valentine story.
"We’re looking for Steampunk Valentine stories, because that seems apropos. But we’re also a little pressed for time, so we’d like them to be short shorts. There isn’t a specific definition for this length, but 500 words would be a good guideline. If you go over a little, so be it. If you hit 1000, it is safe to say you’ve got more story than our little contest can handle. So, that’s the short short part.
The short part is that you only have a week, well less than a week really. Stories need to be in by next Sunday (January 20th) by midnight Eastern Daylight Time. That’s not much time, but that’s what makes it a short short short competition."
So not much time, but a short entry, a quick turn-around, and a cool prize! Enter here: http://www.steampunk.com/win-a-corset-with-your-steampunk-short-short-valentine-story/
