Humor Story Contest
(Fall/Winter issue)

Deadline: October 17, 2023
Release: December 15, 2023

Contest Description

Due to our belief that everything would be better if we could laugh a little more, and after trying out a few different themes for this issue, we are dedicating the Fall/Winter issue permanently to Humor.

Entries can be fiction, nonfiction, or poetry—as usual, if it tells a story, and makes us laugh, it fits!
