Fiction Competition: 17th Annual Zoetrope: All-Story Short Fiction Contest


Guest Judge: David Means
First prize: $1,000
Second prize: $500
Third prize: $250

The three prizewinners and seven honorable mentions will be considered for representation by William Morris Endeavor, ICM, Regal Literary, the Elaine Markson Literary Agency, Inkwell Management, Sterling Lord Literistic, Aitken Alexander Associates, Barer Literary, the Gernert Company, and the Georges Borchardt Literary Agency.

Important Dates:
Entries must be complete by October 1, 2013, at 11:59 P.M. PDT. Results will be announced at the website December 15 and in the Spring 2014 issue of Zoetrope: All-Story; and the winning story will be published as a special online supplement to that Spring 2014 issue.

Complete Guidelines:
We accept all genres of literary fiction. Entries must be: unpublished; strictly 5,000 words or fewer; and accompanied by a $20 entry fee per story. There are no formatting restrictions; please ensure only that the story is legible. Please omit all personal information from the manuscript itself (ie, name, address, e-mail address, phone number), as all stories are read blindly.
We welcome multiple entries ($20/story), simultaneous submissions, and entrants from outside the U.S. We will e-mail contest updates and results to anyone who provides an active e-mail address. Entrants retain all rights to their stories. Once a story is submitted, we cannot accept an updated draft. (However, an entrant is welcome to submit an updated draft as a new entry.) Entry fees will not be returned or adjusted.

Please e-mail us at contestsATall-storyDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to .) with further questions. Thank you for your interest, and good luck!
