We have chosen this writing contest to inspire you to continue writing that story you set aside years ago or to polish up some of your best work.
Innovative Short Fiction Contest
The winning story will be published in The Conium Review‘s next issue. The winning author will receive $500, five copies of the issue, and a copy of the judge’s latest book.
Innovative short fiction should take risks that pay off. Don’t tell us a story we’ve already heard before. Show us something new with your subject, style, or characters. Make sure your writing has a “wow” factor.
The 2015 contest judge is Amelia Gray. Amelia is the author of Gutshot (FSG Originals, forthcoming in 2015), THREATS (FSG Originals, 2012), Museum of the Weird (Fiction Collective Two, 2010), and AM/PM (Featherproof Books, 2009). If you are a family member, coworker, or student of the judge, you are ineligible for this contest.
Submissions must be received between February 1st, 2015 and May 1st, 2015. Everybody who submits to the contest receives a free digital download of the issue. All submissions must include a $15.00 entry fee. The winner will be announced by July 15th, 2015.
