Cross a new (short story) threshold

Here’s something a little different, as competitions go: THRESHOLDS, the short story forum, has opened its third feature writing competition.   Features with a focus on short stories, that is. How many of us love to read, write and talk about short stories – and here, THRESHOLD have offered an open challenge: to put manners on some of that enthusiasm.  Who’s up for it?
