About the competition

Story Unlikely’s Annual Short Story contest is simply looking for great stories, judged both by the technical and literary quality as well as the author’s ability to tell a story. We are not genre specific, and judging is blind, not based on the author’s credentials, background, or pedigree. This is merit only. May the best story win.

Competition guideline

  • Attention storytellers: we just want good stories! There are no restrictions on genre: fantasy, sci fi, memoir, fiction/nonfiction, etc – we don’t care as long as it’s written and told with quality and care. The story itself cannot exceed 4,500 words. There are no restrictions on age or location of participant, and no need to ask us for permission to participate in the contest – just follow the guidelines below.
  • The submission period runs from October 1st through January 31st.
  • Read the whole guideline and submit an entry here.
