The Current Contest
Short Story Contest #26 officially launched on June 13, 2015.
***THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED TO SUBMISSIONS.***
Its premise was as follows:
This contest’s premise is about technique, not content. Your story can be about almost anything you like*, but all of your story’s events must be presented in chronological order. In other words, time must move only forward in your story—NO FLASHBACKS ARE ALLOWED. (No “flash forwards,” either—meaning no glimpses of the future that return the story to the present.) Start at some point in time, take us “straight forward” through the story's events, and end when it's over.
The next contest (which will be a mini-contest) will launch when the October (not September) newsletter is emailed and issue #26 is published, which should happen on Saturday, October 10 or Sunday, October 11.
