Time's up! — Pencils (and scalpels) down. The deadline for this year's Literary Taxidermy Short Story Competition has passed. Thank you, everyone, for your participation! Now it's our turn to read every story, poem, and epistle. We hope to make an announcement of this year's winners, finalists, and honorable mentions by the end of summer or early fall. We hope you're excited — we certainly are!
