According to our guidelines, we accept online submissions only.
You can choose to submit your short story as a Microsoft Word Document or Acrobat Reader PDF file.
Please mind the deadline and work your way through the guidelines.
One complete submission consists of a short story with a title page and the corresponding paid entry fee.
To match the entry fee with your short story, we insist that you submit your short story as an
e-mail attachment (NOT in the e-mail body).
In the e-mail body, you paste the PayPal transaction ID/number which is displayed after a successful payment.
The four steps:
1. Write your short story and properly format it.
2. Pay the entry fee. There are three options.
Deadline is for all options:
November 30, 2012. Extended to December 14, 2012. Winners announcement: 1st quarter of 2013
||Entry Fee |
|OPTION 1: Participation without feedback
|OPTION 2: Participation with feedback, delivery via e-mail as soon as the winners have been announced (1st quarter of 2013)
|OPTION 3: Participation with detailed feedback, delivery via e-mail within four weeks of submission
If you choose option 3, it will be guaranteed that you will receive in-depth feedback, no matter how your story ranks at the end of the contest.
If you want the examiner to focus on a specific aspect of your story, write it down in the body of your submission e-mail.
We accept PayPal usually, because it is an easy and safe way to pay online. PayPal accepts
all major credit and debit cards. You don't have to create an account, it works without registration.
If you want to use AlertPay (now called Payza) as the alternative, just contact us.
3. Submit your short story as an e-mail attachment to >> email@example.com <<
or >> firstname.lastname@example.org <<!
Write your PayPal transaction ID/number in the body of your e-mail.
4. Within 1 - 3 days, we send an e-mail to you with a brief confirmation of its receipt.
If there are still questions, you may shoot them right to email@example.com
Please keep in mind that you might not be the only one sending in questions and therefore
we kindly ask you for a little patience.
