Write Stuff!

By Patrick Sullivan

HEY YOU! Yeah, you--the one hunched over that notebook, scribbling away in the dark corner of the coffeehouse. You write. You even write well. And here's your chance to see your powerful prose in print.

That's right--it's time for Java Jive, the Bohemian's annual writing contest. This year's theme: Angst for the Memories. Tell us the source of your existential malaise in no more than 500 words. Be creative, be funny, be bawdy--just don't be boring.

The Bohemian will publish the best five entries, as determined by our panel of esteemed judges. If you're the writer of the top entry, you'll win a copy of Dostoyevsky's droll Notes from the Underground, a fresh writing journal, and a pound of coffee to pull you out of your funk. The second and third place winners just get the coffee.

Entries must be received by Sept. 24 at 5 p.m. They must be double-spaced and legible and won't be returned. No more than three entries per person. E-mail to, fax to 707/527-1288, or mail to the Bohemian, Attention: Java Jive, 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95403. Bohemian staff and relatives are ineligible.

From the August 23-29, 2001 issue of the Northern California Bohemian.
