John Grisham wants to read your short story!

John Grisham wants to read your short story!

You’ve read stories by John Grisham, but now he wants to read your story. Even though he has a new book called The Associate slated for publication later this month, he has again accepted the challenge of wielding a gavel in the literary world by judging the Hook’s annual short story contest.

The grand-prize winner receives $700, second place $200, and third place, $100.

Next comes the fame. The grand prize-winning story will be published in the Hook in late March when lots of literary types are in town for the Virginia Festival of the Book.

In addition, all three winners will be officially saluted at the opening event of this year’s Festival (vabook.org) on Wednesday, March 18. This year’s Festival hotshots (besides you, of course) include another lawyer turned novelist, David Baldacci, Duke professor Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational (on the timely topic of behaviorial economics), as well as Big Stone Gap’s top native novelist Adriana Trigiani, author of the upcoming Very Valentine.

    whats happened to all that suspense, thrills,
    twists and turns of yr previous books? I recently completed yr book The Appeal, which I felt left little appeal to read upcoming books. The Innocent Man, although based on a true story was so repetetive and greuling that I hesitate to read the upcoming The Associate. Although I might be out of line to comment so dismally, I felt it ought to be said, as I expected so much more from a writer of The Partner…spellbounding, The Pelican Brief, The Firm …all astounding in their riveting tales. However, something is lost in playing for pizza, and house something or other. You have such magnatism when you want to use it…..sry, had to say it.

    You should write a book and call it “The Secretary”. I was a legal secretary for 33 plus years working for various law firms and then working for the US Circuit Court for a federal judge.

    I gave up my career two years ago because of the corruption seen in the legal field.

    Write a book from The Secretary’s perspective.
