Wags Review Short Story Contest #seanocarolan.com #Writing #contest
We hold two contests annually, the Winter Contest from December 1 through the end of February and the Summer Contest, from June 1 to August 31. The contests are open to all three genres and are judged by the editors. For each, first prize is $1000 and guaranteed publication in the magazine, second prize is $500 and third $100. All pieces are considered for publication. There is a $20 reading fee per contest submission, plus Submittable's fee. The 2015 Winter Contest is currently open.
Open reading periods are held from the beginning of March through the end of May and from the beginning of September through end of November.
We only accept submissions via our Submittable page. (Meaning, please, do not email or heaven forbid snail mail your submission to us.) While we allow for simultaneous submissions, if your work is accepted elsewhere, please withdraw the piece on Submittable, rather than emailing us about it. If you are at all concerned about the status of your submission, feel free to write us, though we appreciate your patience if it takes us several months to respond to you about your piece.
Wag’s Revue compensates its writers $100 per piece (interview, poem or group of poems, essay, or short story).
If you’re interested in interviewing a writer, comedian or some other such waggish luminary for an upcoming issue, send an email introducing yourself, the figure in question, why you want to interview him or her, and whether you have access to said person already, to email@example.com.
If you’re a visual artist interested in being considered for the Featured Artist title, visit the Submittable link and enter your work in the Visual Artist category.
