Saw this today at a trade show and thought some of you might be interested. Yes, it's for real, and you can check out the details at http://www.xeroxaspiringauthors.com/
It's also listed on the Xerox.com website for those of you who are skeptical.

"To qualify, participants must be legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia and 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. Entries must be received by July 1, 2005. Only one entry per participant may be submitted. The first 1,000 eligible submissions will be judged in this contest. "

"Xerox Searches for Best Unpublished Novels

All storytellers who enter 'Aspiring Authors' contest will see their work in print
ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 05, 2005 -- Calling all aspiring authors: Here's your chance to get published.

Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today is kicking off the Xerox Aspiring Authors fiction contest designed to stop the cycle of rejection letters that keep so many from seeing their work in print. The grand-prize-winning novelist will receive 100 published copies of his or her story, $5,000 in cash, and a possible opportunity to launch a new literary career. In addition, Xerox will demonstrate the power of on-demand book-publishing technology - which makes it cost-effective to digitally print books in quantities of one to 1,000 - by printing a free paperback copy of every novel entered. . . ."

There may be copyright issues with story hours, since most D&D story hours will use Wizards' IP... (And likewise for other game systems and game settings.)
