Eighth Annual Java Jive

'Bohemian' writing contest displays the wonders of modern fiction

Amazing things happen when you put a call out for fiction submissions. With no theme, only a word count to hang their hat on, writers have free reign. And they take it. A little soft-core erotica, a few redemption stories, strange recurrences of priests and prisoners--we got a bit of everything. Here is the cream of that crop, according to our esteemed judges--Jonah Raskin, head of the communications department at Sonoma State; Katy Dang, organizer of the Sonoma County Book Fair, and Jordan Rosenfeld, organizer of the LiveWire Literary Salon at Zebulon's. Many thank yous are due to them for putting in precious time to read the entries, as well as to Jane Love at Copperfield's Books for all of her help.

Come and see our five notables read their work at a free event at A'Roma Roasters, 95 Fifth St. in Santa Rosa on Nov. 7, 6-8pm. Support the arts.

From the October 31-November 6, 2002 issue of the North Bay Bohemian.
