The Cupboard’s Short Story Contest (Feb 1-March 31)


The winning author will receive $500 and the manuscript will be published as an upcoming volume of The Cupboard.

Please submit manuscripts between 4,000 and 10,000 words, of one piece or many, through Submishmash between February 1st and March 31st. The entire manuscript should not have been published previously, but if individual pieces have appeared elsewhere, please include an acknowledgments page. All submissions will be read blind so do not include your name or contact information anywhere on the manuscript, but do include this information in your cover letter. Simultaneous and multiple submissions are fine, though each submission will require the $10 contest fee.

The contest entry period will be open February 1, 2011. Entry fee: $10. All entries will be considered for general publication as a volume of The Cupboard.
