This has been a week for writing contests and opportunities. In the same spirit of offering aid, here is a worthy cause with which to share your passion and skill.

"100 Stories for Queensland" is a charity anthology to assist the survivors of the Queensland floods in Australia. Stories are being donated by writers from across the globe and 100% of the sales profit will be donated to the Queensland Premier's Flood Relief appeal. http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/

Theye are accepting previously unpublished short fiction between 500 – 1000 words. No multiple submissions allowed. The deadline is Friday, 28th January 11:59pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

The anthology will be available in digital and print form, and is expected to be ready for release late February/early March. Copyright of all work will remain with the author. For a complete list of guidelines, please visit: http://100storiesforqueensland.submishmash.com/Submit
