Tell all your friends! It's time for the 8th annual CL Fiction Contest Party!

Joins us Thurs., Jan. 8 from 7-9 p.m. at Eyedrum (290 MLK Jr. Drive,  Suite 8, 404-522-0655, www.eyedrum.org).

We received more than 200 entries and had to whittle them down to our three faves. It wasn’t easy, believe us. We had amazing help from our three local judges: award-winning children's author Carmen Deedy; author, playwright and professor Phillip DePoy; and bookworm, aspiring author and Wordsmiths Books marketing guru Russ Marshalek.

The party, which is FREE!! and open to the public, is great chance to mingle with writers in the community, listen to author readings from the three winning stories, dance to some smooth party jams by local band Night Moves Gold and indulge in refreshments from Highland Bakery.

Aside from the readings, live music and food, Wordsmiths Books will be on hand to sell books, CL will open up its press closet for a book swap and party co-sponsors Oxford Comics and Eyedeology, who'll be collecting old eyeglasses, will have tables at the event.

Come help Creative Loafing support Atlanta’s burgeoning literary scene. We think you'll like what you hear.
