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

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.
