Entry Fees

$5 per entry


First: $1,000
Second: $100
Honorable Mentions (3): $25 each


We are open to ANY subject, writing style or length, and all entries are read blind so everyone gets an equal chance. Previous winning stories have involved topics as diverse as:

– a Siamese twin who fears her twin sister is plotting to kill her

– a movie star sex goddess in an almost completely asexual society

– a young Belfast boy who joins the IRA after his sister is killed by British soldiers

– a prostitute traumatized by the suicide of a girl in her rooming house

Enter by email or snail mail.

All five finalists will be published online in the June 2017 issue of Gemini.

This is our eighth annual short story contest. All previous winners and finalists may be read online.
