Stories That Need to Be Told: The Contest

on

DEADLINE: AUGUST 15, 2019


CONTEST RULES & SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Category
There is only one category: the Story. There is truth in any story, and the reason you choose to tell a particular story may be the most important story of all. But, before we get too philosophical, here’s the point: submissions should tell a story. It doesn’t matter if you consider it fiction, nonfiction, or poetry—if it tells a story, it fits. 

Prizes
Grand Prize: $1,000 and a 2-year ($100) gift certificate to Duotrope.
Five additional prizes of $200 will be given for stories that excel in the merits of Humor, Passion, Depth, and (any form of) Love. An additional $200 prize will be awarded in a wild card category, to be determined by the entries. We’ll call this one the Bonus category. Additionally, winners and Honorable Mentions will be published in and receive a free copy of the annual Stories That Need to Be Told anthology.

Word Limit 
10,000 words

Entry Fee
$20 per entry. That includes $20 per poem (because every entry has the potential to win the same cash prizes). There is no limit on the number of times you may enter. If you withdraw your entry as noted below, the entry fee is nonrefundable.

Deadline
August 15, 2019*  11:59 p.m. Pacific 

Submissions are accepted all year for the next deadline. Note, however, that all entries are read as a group after the deadline, so only submit early if you are okay with waiting until the deadline to hear back
