Enter the competition

‘F. Scott Fitzgerald in Hollywood’ Short Fiction Contest Announced

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 5, 2005) The film production and web publishing company responsible for the petition drive to name the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Hayworth Avenue in honor of the late F. Scott Fitzgerald has announced a short fiction competition to further commemorate the author on the sixty-fifth anniversary of his passing.

At the time of his demise on December 21, 1940, the celebrated author of “The Great Gatsby” and “Tender is the Night” was living at 1443 North Hayworth Avenue in the home of gossip columnist Sheilah Graham.

<>Rodger Jacobs, President of 8763 Wonderland Ltd., is requesting works of original fiction of no more than four hundred words on the subject of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last days in Hollywood.

“The stories can deal with Scott directly or indirectly,” says Jacobs, “just as long as they somehow address F. Scott Fitzgerald in Hollywood.”

<>Entries will be judged on originality and overall style. Prizes will be announced “sometime in the near future,” Jacobs remarked.

“We’re still searching for sponsors,” Jacobs says, indicating that motion picture giant 20th-Century Fox would be “a remarkable tie-in because they are currently shooting an adaptation of ‘Tender is the Night.’”

The deadline for short fiction entries is August 1, 2005. Entries may be e-mailed to There is no fee for entrants, though Pay Pal donations are suggested to help defray costs involved in mounting the continuing petition drive.
