2014 Writing Contest

Scribes Valley Publishing is accepting submissions for their 12th annual short story writing contest. All finalists (around 10-15 stories) are published in annual contest anthology. Monetary prizes for top 3 finalists are based on contest participation – the more entries we receive, the bigger the prize amounts.

Thrill us…amaze us…entertain us…TELL US A STORY!

Deadline:  August 31, 2014
Word limit: 5,000
Entry Fee:  $7.00 US
Winners announced: around October 15, 2014

You can enter by snail mail or online submission.

Complete submission guidelines and rules on our website: http://www.scribesvalley.com.

Contests are open to everyone, regardless of nationality, age, or publishing history, as long as it is legal in the entrant's place of residence.

All work must be original and unpublished. The author must own all rights to the submitted material. We require only First Anthology Rights for those stories we publish. All other rights remain with the author.

Simultaneous submissions are okay. However, if the work is published (or accepted for publication) elsewhere before the contest ends, the author must inform Scribes Valley Publishing so the story may be removed from contest consideration.
