The Write Contest and Community is now accepting entries for our Short Story contest. Writers of any kind are welcome to enter.

Early Registration ($25) Ends April 1st / Registration ($35) Ends April 22nd

1st place wins $500, an “Ask the author?” Zoom session, and books from our judges in your chosen format.
2nd place wins $350.
3rd place wins $150.

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.
All submissions are reviewed by our professional team and winners are chosen by our featured judging panel.

This is the first year, and we don’t know how many entries to expect. Prize money is GUARANTEED, no matter how many contestants enter. If only ten people sign up, we are still paying $1000 in cash between the top three entrants.
