Kat: $3,500 Ghost, Fable, and Fractured Fairy Tales Prize
Judged by Kevin Brockmeier
We invite writers to submit to the Fractured Lit Ghost, Fable, and Fractured Fairy Tales Prize through February 15, 2021. Guest judge Kevin Brockmeier will choose three prize winners from a shortlist. We're excited to offer the winner of this prize $3000 and publication, while the 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive publication and $300 and $200, respectively. All entries will be considered for publication.
Fractured Lit is looking for stories of ghosts, fables, allegory, and fractured fairy tales in 1,000 words or less. Using these genre themes please remember that we're searching for flash that investigates the mysteries of being human, the sorrow, and the joy of connecting to the diverse population around us. We want something new. Something that scares as much as it resonates; stories that help us discover the roots of desire and conflict, that shimmer on the page, that keep us reading, and wondering long after the last period on the page. Transport us from the here and now to a new land of discovery, a new way of being terrified, a new way of embracing all of the ways we show our humanness. Fractured Lit is a flash fiction–centered place for all writers of any background and experience.
DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 15
$20 Reading Fee*
*Your $20 reading fee allows up to two stories of 1,000 words or fewer each per entry.
