Flash Fiction and Postcard Contest: Shady Side Review

Shady Side Review Postcard Contest - $1.00 entry fee.

Shady Side Review is having a postcard contest! We’re looking for your very best prose or poetry of 100 words or less. The entry fee is only $1.00 per submission. If you win, you’ll receive a cash prize and ten glossy postcards featuring your work.

Think of all the fun you can have mailing your friends and family postcards that, instead of featuring a predictable city skyline, will showcase your writing. As far as the cash prize goes, our grand prize winner will receive 20% of the submissions revenue. The more submissions we receive, the more money you win. So you know what that means, encourage your fellow writers, neighbors, cat, etc. to submit and compete against you for the gold (we should mention that you will not receive real gold unless you specifically request your winnings in Sacajawea dollars). Two runners-up, you can call them second and third place if you prefer, will receive 10 copies of their postcards, but no cash. Sorry.

On top of that, yes, it does keep getting better and better, we will be handing out the winners’ postcards at AWP in Denver this year. Think of all that amazing publicity. So what are you waiting for? Submit!

Please visit our website for the guidelines.
