$1000 grand prize, plus five $200 awards
There are no genres in this contest. We want to hear your stories that need to be told, whether that’s an essay, short story, or poem–it just has to tell a story. One grand prize winner wins $1000 and five category winners will each win $200 (categories are Love, Depth, Humor, and Passion plus a new “Surprise Me” category this year). Winners and 20-25 honorable mentions will be published in the 2017 Stories That Need to Be Told anthology. The 2016 anthology was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award. Deadline: September 16th.
