Were you published last year? Were you born in Texas, or have you lived in Texas for the last two years, or is your story about Texas? Then check out the literary contests from the Texas Institute of Letters: http://texasinstituteofletters.org/Details%20for%202013%20Literary%20Contests.pdf
Deadline is January 10, 2014 (postmarked, meaning you have to get your entry into the mail on or before that date.)
There are several categories, so follow the link above to see if your writing applies to one of them.
This is an annual contest, though the closing date changes each year. If one of the last three questions above applies to you, but you haven’t been published yet, keep this contest in mind. You might just be able to enter next year. (Keep in mind that they do not accept online publications or unpublished works.)
