Fall 2008 Short Story Contest $1000 1st
Tue, 11-04-2008 - 2:05pm

Following the success of the Summer 2008 Warren Adler Short Story Contest, I am sponsoring another international competition. The theme is simply short fiction in all of its varied genres. I am looking for original, imaginative pieces featuring compelling characters and creative plots. Whether you specialize in mainstream fiction, romance, horror, fantasy, science-fiction, satire, mystery, or any of their subcategories, I want to read your work.

Entries must not exceed 2,500 words. Stories from all the points of the globe will be considered provided that they are written in English. Mr. Adler will select which story will be awarded the Grand Prize of $1,000.

Although I will have already chosen the winner, the five finalists' stories will be posted on my website on January 19, 2009. The People's Choice winner will be determined by public voting. My top choice, along with the People's Choice winner, will be announced on February 2, 2009.

Submissions will be accepted from October 1, 2008 to January 16, 2009. The entry fee is $15. Five cash prizes will be awarded.

* 1st Prize: $1000
* People's Choice Prize $500
* Remaining finalists receive $150 each

I look forward to reading all your submissions!
