Fabula Press Contests

Fabula Press’ Aestas Short Story Competition 2017

Dates: Contest opened on 15 Jul 2017, and submissions will be accepted till 14 Oct 2017. The results will tentatively be declared in Dec 2017.

Prizes: The contest carries the following prizes:

  • First Prize:      US$250
  • Second Prize: US$150
  • Third Prize:     US$100

All longlisted entries (top 15-20) get published in an anthology, and non-prize winning published entries will be paid US$50 each. Also, at the sponsors’ discretion, additional prizes may be declared for ‘Editors’ Pick’ category (in the last edition of the contest three such prizes of US$75 each were declared).

Theme: None. There is no restriction on genre either, and apart from literary fiction we are also happy to read historical fiction, mystery/suspense, and horror. However, for consistency of presentation we cannot accept children’s stories, young adult or chick lit; likewise, hardcore science fiction or fantasy is not something we are looking for, but are open to science / alternative history / fantasy based works if they have standalone literary merit. In case of doubt, it is best to query the editorial team.

Word count: Minimum 1500, maximum 7000. At the editors’ discretion, some latitude may be allowed on both minimum and maximum word counts for stories of exceptional merit.

Entry fee: US$10.
