IRVINGTON — “The doors to the Irvington Public Library parted, and inside…”

The rest of the story is up to the imaginations of whoever chooses to participate in the Friends of the Irvington Library’s (or FOIL) flash fiction summer literary contest. The contest is the third annual sponsored by the Friends, the nonprofit organization that fundraises for the Irvington Public Library and supports its lectures, exhibits, book clubs and other programs.

This year’s contest, which is open to anyone in or outside of Irvington, calls upon participants to use the prompt as the first line of an intriguing short story of 250 words or less. The authors of the top stories in the adult (18 years and older), teen (13-17 years) and child (12 years and younger) categories, as selected by the Friends board of directors, will win $100 gift cards to Curious-on-Hudson bookstore at 145 Palisade Street in Dobbs Ferry, and two tickets to the 2015 FOIL annual spelling bee. Runners-up in each category will get a pair of tickets and a $25 gift card. Read more >
