Entries must be at least 500 and no more than 4,000 words in length. This year’s contest is themed around robots, meaning all submitted stories must include a robot in some way. There aren’t any limitations on this: the robot can be the main character, a minor character, a prop or toy for a character, or something within the story’s world or society. Robots of all kinds are welcome, and entries can be fiction or narrative nonfiction (true stories).

Entries will be judged by Molly McCowan from Inkbot Editing, Naomi Kim Eagleson from The Artful Editor, and Erin Brenner from Right Touch Editing. Additional contest guidelines and information on how to submit can be found on the contest web page, inkbotediting.com/contest.
