BOULEVARD MAGAZINE Short Fiction Contest for Emerging Writers - Deadline December 31, 2014


Short Fiction Contest for Emerging Writers


RULES

All entries must be postmarked by December 31, 2014. Simultaneous submissions are allowed but previously accepted or published work is ineligible. Entries will be judged by the editors of Boulevard magazine.


Entry fee is $15 for each individual story, with no limit per author, and includes a one-year subscription. Make checks payable to Boulevard.


We accept works up to 8,000 words. Author's name, address, and telephone number, in addition to the story's title and "Boulevard Emerging Writers Contest," should appear on page one. Cover sheets are not necessary. Manuscripts should be typed and double spaced.

Contest entries can be submitted electronically or by mail.


Electronic submissions:


https://boulevard.submittable.com/submit



Send manuscript(s) and SAS post card for acknowledgement of receipt to: Boulevard Emerging Writers Contest, PMB 325, 6614 Clayton Road, Richmond Heights, MO 63117. No manuscripts will be returned.


Due to the number of submissions, we cannot respond to each writer individually. Each author will receive an acknowledgement of receipt but will need to check the website for notification of the winner.

The winning story will be first announced on the website, traditionally during June, though occasionally earlier, and then published in the Spring or Fall 2015 issue of Boulevard.


These are the complete guidelines.
