Call for Writers - Short Story Contest (up to 1231 words)

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

In the Short Story Contest we give you a genre, a character prompt, and a location prompt. You write the best story you can, within the word count given.

This contest has the potential of several rounds. The first round you will have the shortest word count and shortest timeframe before the submission deadline.

If your story is selected to advance to the next round then you will receive a new set of prompts, with a different word count and a longer timeline to compose your submission before the entry deadline.

There will be as few as one round to as many as three rounds depending on the number of participants.

Although, you may only submit one story per round. Multiple rounds mean you could get more than one finished story out of the experience and can explore different creative avenues throughout the process. This contest is a great opportunity to try new genres and explore new ways to express your writing voice and style.

You are assigned a randomized genre for each round which may include a mix of traditional flavors and new twists Including (but not limited to):

Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Steampunk, Mystery/Thriller, Drama,Romance, Horror, Historical Fiction, Heist, Comedy, Supernatural, Hybrid, and Choose-your-own.

Prize money is GUARANTEED, no matter how many contestants enter. This is the first year, and we have literally no idea how many entries to expect. If only ten people sign up, we are still paying $1000 in cash between the top three entrants.

Details and directions for the contest will be e-mailed to you so check your junk/spam folder if you don’t see it come through after registration.

Submissions cannot be accepted or accessed after the deadline, so make sure you plan ahead and upload your story in plenty of time.

Call for Writers - Dialogue Only Contest (up to 250 words)

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Who here has ever skimmed over rich detailed paragraphs of description scrambling to find the next section of dialogue?

Yup! Guilty.

Well written dialogue can move your story forward more effectively than pages of narrative.

The Dialogue Only Contest is an opportunity to create a clear and compelling story using nothing but dialogue.

Your entry can be up to 250 words. Even the smallest words add to the word-count (we believe in the power of the little guys) and contrractions count as one word (because working together makes us better!)

You may have as many characters as you choose, but the dialogue must stand on its own without any description, gestures, narration, or dialogue tags (i.e. he/she/they said).

For this contest grammar is secondary and your entry does not have to follow standard rules for writing dialogue.

Prize summary: 
up to $200 cash
Prizes Details: 
  • 1st place wins $200 cash and a book from one of our judges in your chosen format.
  • 2nd place wins $100 cash.
