The rules are as follows:
This writing contest (or writing competition) opened for entries on June 1, 2018 and will close on August 31, 2018 at midnight.
There is no entry fee.
It is open to anyone, from any country, of any age.
Winners will be announced early October 2018.
The story should be in digital form, Microsoft Word or PDF.
Each contestant may enter only one story.
Formatting in accordance with common practice; see the internet, for instance:
Preferred word count between 1500 and 5000 words. The better the story, the greater the margin may be, within reason.
The winners will be published in the first official edition of this magazine, planned for October 2018.
Stories outside the top 3 may still be published at our usual flat fee of US$25.
We buy non-exclusive, one-time rights for online publication during a period of 6 months, with an option to repeat this for our usual fee of US$25.
Simultaneous submissions are fine.
Publications elsewhere are not a problem either.
Stories are to be uploaded by filling out the form below. If for some weird reason it does not work, you can send it as an attachment by email, by clicking here
As a special courtesy to any talented Dutch writers we offer them the possibility of submitting their stories in Dutch. If they end up in the top 3, we shall have them translated, free of charge. (Nederlandse schrijvers kunnen hun verhalen in hun moedertaal inzenden. Als ze in de top 3 eindigen, zorgen wij voor de vertaling, gratis.)
