Writer Advice Contests for 2017
Always look for the tan box on the home page to find out the latest information about our contests.
We just finished our traditional Flash Fiction Contest. The results appear on the Flash page
We’re currently planning to run some of the Honorable Mentions that have not been published in the fall issue (Oct-Dec).
Our winter issue (Jan-Mar, 2018) will include the best submissions to our Scintillating Starts Contest.
Send us 1200 word or less of the opening of your novel or memoir. Agents often decide whether or not they want to pursue a project after reading only the first page or two. We’re actually giving you more. Grab and hold your reader.
Deadline: December 1, 2017
All finalists can consider themselves winners and say so to potential agents.
Those whose openings are published will be paid $60 apiece.
Our next Flash Memoir Contest will open on January 1, 2018 and close on March 1, 2018.
Our next Flash Fiction Contest will open on April 1, 2018 and close on June 1, 2018.
