New Writers Story Contest
(Summer issue)


Deadline: May 23
Release: June 21


This contest is for writers who have not yet been published. Specifically, we consider being published by a journal or magazine, in print or online, as being previously published (i.e., you sent out your work, and someone said yes).


We also consider self-publishing your book as officially being published.


However, if you post articles to a blog or put your stories up on your own personal website, that would not disqualify you for this contest. 


We are looking, as ever, for stories that need to be told. These can be fiction, nonfiction, or poetry—if it tells a story, it fits. 


We love it when contributors tell us that we are their first publishing credit, and this contest exists to provide more people with that opportunity.
