Please submit up to 6,000 words of a single prose piece for our consideration, or up to three flash pieces of prose each under 1,000 words. Manuscripts should be double-spaced, paginated, and in 12 pt. font unless the form of the piece dictates otherwise. We consider fiction, nonfiction, and drama along with scholarly, illustrated, and hybrid works. Please remove any identifying information from the manuscript.
Helen Oyeyemi will serve as final prose judge for the contest. Those with a personal or professional connection to the judge should not submit due to potential conflict of interest. Queries about what constitutes a connection with potential conflict of interest can be directed to email@example.com
We expect to announce our winners and finalists by the end of September.
All submissions must be previously unpublished. Multiple entries to the contest are fine, but a separate contest fee must be paid each time. Please note that if you send work to general submissions, you are also welcome to submit to the contest.
Also, contributors to our most recent issues are welcome to submit to the contest, despite our request to not submit to the general submissions.
Full contest guidelines, plus a FAQ, can be found at http://fairytalereview.com/submit/contests/
