Do you have some writing ready to submit? Could you get it ready real fast?
Narrative Magazine’s Winter 2015 Contest ends Tuesday, March 31 at midnight, PST
This contest is open to all fiction and nonfiction writers: shorts, short stories, essays, memoirs, photo essays, graphic stories, all forms of literary nonfiction, and excerpts from longer works of both fiction and nonfiction.
Entries must be previously unpublished, no longer than 15,000 words, and must not have been previously chosen as a winner, finalist, or honorable mention in another contest.
Narrative is looking for works with a strong narrative drive, with characters we can respond to as human beings, and with effects of language, situation, and insight that are intense and total. We look for works that have the ambition of enlarging our view of ourselves and the world.
Narrative welcomes and looks forward to reading your pages.
Submission Fee: There is a $23 fee for each entry. And with your entry, you’ll receive three months of complimentary access to Narrative Backstage.
Awards: First Prize is $2,500, Second Prize is $1,000, Third Prize is $500, and ten finalists will receive $100 each. All entries will be considered for publication.
Submission Guidelines: Please read Submission Guidelines for manuscript formatting and other information.
