The Creative Partners Media Network has launched its annual short story writing contest with cash prizes and publication in its new anthology book for the contest winners.

This year Creative Partners author Randy Jernigan will oversee the competition and stand in as a judge reading the last 20 entries and making the final decision on the first, second and third place winners.

"I was thrilled that my publishing partners asked me to serve in this capacity for the competition this year! My own writing career was started by winning a writing contest sponsored by our local newspaper more than 25 years ago, and what a fun and fulfilling journey it's been!"

Organizers of the competition recently made the decision to allow writers from other countries to enter, as long as the stories are written in English.

Shortly after the announcement that the contest had launched, the organization began receiving request from writers as far as Ireland, Scotland and Australia.

Randy with author Les Bailey
According to several media reports author Randy Jernigan will write and publish a memoir about his twenty two years as a freelance tabloid journalist for such weeklies as Globe and Star, but the busy writer says the book won't be about spilling a lot of celebrity secrets, but coming to terms with his own past and, in some cases, making amends and changing career paths.

Veteran writer Randy Jernigan took to his Facebook page to share his exuberance in his former student, Les Bailey, and his new book, The Vampire Game: Discovery. which debuted in Kindle Books November 19, 2015.

"I knew when I first met Les several years back in one of my creative writing classes, that he was going to write the great American novel--and he did! Even then Les was a master storyteller. I remember vividly the feelings of excitement I experienced when he read aloud from one of his class assignments. The prose within the story was downright delicious. I recognized almost immediately that Les had already developed his own unique and, even sensuous voice, which is what I was aiming for for each of my pupils by the end of the 8 week class series.
So when Les approached me about co-editing and promoting his first venture into authoring, I accepted without reservation. I would have felt like one of the several publishing companies that turned down J K Rowling's Harry Potter book in the end. I was absolutely honored to lend a hand.
