2012 Fiction Writing Contest, $100 Prize

Quarterly 2012 writing contest now open – fiction

15,000 words or less (includes flash fiction, short-shorts, short stories, novel excerpts that can stand alone as short stories). We do not accept overtly sexual, vulgar, gothic, or horror fiction. We are open to diverse perspectives. In addition, we encourage juvenile fiction and encourage multicultural, women’s, and Christian fiction.

$100 cash prize, publication in our online magazine, and free editing/editorial review services for contest winners. So, if you’re working on the next great American novel or a collection of short stories or nonfiction that you would like a professional critique on before you send your manuscript to a literary agent or publisher, Dvercity, Inc. is a good partnership for you (no hidden strings attached).
