The Wild Onion Novella Contest


Sunday, December 31, 2017


Entry Fees



$250 and ten copies of the finished publication.


We are seeking novella submissions between 20,000 and 40,000 words that exemplify the best of Curbside’s style—work that is gritty, experimental, speculative, weird, humorous, or any compelling combination of the above. And as always, we’re looking for diverse, extraordinary voices.

The winning entry will be published in Summer 2018 as a limited and numbered print run sold exclusively through our web store, as well as an e-book that will be distributed through Curbside’s normal channels.
The winner will receive $250 and 10 copies of the publication.
