Wednesday, July 1, 2020



Entry Fees



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


The seventh annual Innovative Short Fiction contest is judged by Emily Wortman-Wunder, author of NOT A THING TO COMFORT YOU (University of Iowa Press, 2019). Innovative short fiction should take risks that pay off. Don’t tell us a story we’ve already heard before. Show us something new with your subject, style, or characters. Send us your weirdest and wildest stories. The winning story will be published in THE CONIUM REVIEW: VOLUME 9. The winning author receives $500, five copies of the issue, and a copy of Emily’s book.
