Suggestion: Get a literary magazine like Readers Digest to sponsor this weekly contest (and the poetry contest). Then gather the weeky contests periodically, say quarterly, semi-annually, or even annually. Allow the publication to pick the best entry and publish it. I imagine you could also do this for the annual Science Fiction Contest with the help of a Science Fiction magazine. It might pave the way for closer ties with the publishing industry and attract more writers to the forum. Of course, it would go a long way toward keeping the forum alive.
