Lawyers know how to craft motions, briefs, and summary judgments, but do they have the “write” stuff to pen a short story? The Texas Bar Journal Short Story Contest is back. Interested applicants should submit a previously unpublished short story dealing with the law or lawyers. The June 2014 issue of the Texas Bar Journal will feature the top three stories, as selected by an independent panel of judges. Manuscripts should not exceed 2,000 words and submissions are due by 5 p.m. CST Monday, March 3, 2014. For more information and an entry form, go to
