Writer’s Digest Short Story Genre Competition

Writer's Digest Competitions:

Writer’s Digest is proud to announce 6 new short story genre competitions!

Science Fiction/Fantasy | Thriller | Crime | Young Adult | Romance | Horror
It’s as simple as this:  choose your genre. Start writing.
No prompts, no pressure, no limits. Enter your most imaginative work in 4,000 words or less. Each and every one of the 6 new competitions offers the chance to win $1,000!

Concoct a thriller. Tingle spines with a horror. Melt cold hearts with a tender romance. Whatever genre you prefer, whatever story you want to tell — we have the competition for you.

SCIENCE FICTION/FANTASY What does the future hold? Colonized planets, maybe. Apocalypse? Perhaps time travel. You decide. Enter by September 15, 2011.

Thriller/Suspense Whodunnit? Don’t keep us in suspense! YOU do it…by September 15, 2011.

Young Adult Harry Potter. Twilight. The Hunger Games. The popularity of Young Adult fiction has everlasting life! Sink your teeth into it! Enter by October 1, 2011!

Romance Please…we ache for your entries. Don’t be cold-hearted. Enter by October 15, 2011!

Crime A bank robbery. A theft. A murder. We’ll start you off with this clue: The deadline is October 22, 2011!

Horror Just like the barely-audible shuffles of a zombie, the deadline’s far-off … but it’s coming.

The UnDeadline: October 31, 2011


I really enjoy working on short stories so I’m thinking of entering the crime and/or romance genre but it might have to wait for a few days. I got into Phoenix sunday (I’m not going to mention the fact that I’m melting) and I should probably finish unpacking first 🙂
