Entry Fees

$20 per entry


$1,000 grand prize plus five additional prizes of $200 each. Winners and honorable mentions are published in the annual Stories That Need to Be Told anthology.


Stories change us. Stories determine how we see the world. Stories change the world. That’s why this contest has only one category—the story. Whether you consider it fiction, nonfiction, or poetry, as long as it tells a story, it fits. One grand prize winner will receive $1,000, and 5 additional winners will each receive $200 for their merits in Love, Depth, Humor, and Passion, plus a Bonus category to be determined by how the entries strike us (alternate category name: I Can’t Even…). The winners and up to 20 honorable mentions will be published in TulipTree’s annual Stories That Need to Be Told anthology. (Note: We’re still super excited that the 2016 anthology was a finalist for a Colorado Book Award!) See website for complete submission guidelines.
