We’re on the hunt for the best short fiction.

Submit your best fictional work in 2,000 words or less to our annual fall short story contest and you could win $1,000 and publication in our magazine! Any genre is fair game as long as it’s a work of fiction – no essays, memoir chapters, or poetry, please. 

Need some inspiration before you submit? Take a look at our vast collection of writing prompts, or dive into our fiction-writing archives to read expert tips from the pros.

You can also read these past short story winners to see examples of fiction that’s wowed us in the past:

Don’t wait too long to submit, however: The deadline for this contest is December 2nd.
