A Short Short Contest


Have you completed your short story? Polished it? Does it show you’ve mastered the MRU and story structure? Does your main character grab your heart? Then it’s time to share your baby with the world—or at least the English speaking people.

Writers Digest is sponsoring its 14th Annual Short Short Story Competition for manuscripts with 1,500 words or less. The first ten winners will have their entries published in the 2014 July/August edition of Writers Digest Magazine. The first place winner will also receive $3,000 and a trip to the WD Conference in New York City. Second prize is $1,500, third is $500 and fourth through tenth receive $100. Eleventh through twenty-fifth will get $50. Good luck to you.—Quinn
