F(r)iction Winter Literary Competition
TBL is pleased to announce the F(r)iction Winter Literary Competition. There are three submission categories: 1) short stories of any genre ranging from 1,000 to 7,500 words, 2) flash fiction with a word limit of 750 words, and 3) poetry no longer than three pages. Winners of the contest will be published in a future issue of F(r)iction alongside stunning original artwork from TBL’s talented team of artists. F(r)iction is dedicated to publishing the best writing of all kinds, and we encourage submissions that push boundaries and take risks in genre, plot, and style.
Deadline: March 31, 2016. Midnight PST.
Judging: The finalists for each category will be read by a guest judge, who will select a winner to be published in the Summer 2016 issue of F(r)iction. Isaac Marion is the Short Story Contest judge, Kathy Fish is the Flash Fiction Contest judge, and CA Conrad is the Poetry Contest judge.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please notify TBL if your work is selected for publication elsewhere as soon as possible. We encourage writers to submit as many stories as they wish. All stories will be considered for publication in F(r)iction Series, our triannual print journal.
Our judges also reserve the right not to award a winner in any category if submissions do not meet our standards of publication.
Tethered by Letters reserves the right to discuss contest entries, finalists, and winners in the Untethered Podcast.
