The Conium Review 2015 Innovative Short Fiction Contest


Friday, May 1, 2015


Entry Fees

$15 (includes free digital download of the issue)


$500 prize, publication in The Conium Review, five copies of the print issue, and one copy of the judge's latest book.


Submit one or more short stories up to 7,500 total words.

Innovative short fiction should take risks that pay off. Don’t tell us a story we’ve already heard. Show us something new with your subject, style or characters. Make sure your writing has a “wow” factor.

This year’s contest judge is Amelia Gray, author of Gutshot (FSG Originals, 2015), Threats (FSG Originals, 2012), Museum of the Weird (Fiction Collective Two, 2010) and AM/PM (Featherproof Books, 2009).
