Creative Writing Contests WordPress

Fun homework quotes

It’s simple: write a poem or a short story that follows the prompt below. We read the submissions, pick our favorite*, and if it’s yours, you get a crisp $50 bill mailed to your front door. Your poem or short story will then be published in the Spring Edition of the Aztec Literary Review. Runner ups will be published as well, but will not receive a cash prize.

SO HERE’S THE PROMPT:

Prompt coming Fall 2014

To submit your entry, follow these guidelines:

Your contest submissions DO NOT count towards other ALR submissions. So you may still submit four poems or two short stories as well as a contest submission. However, please send your fiction / poetry pieces and contest submission in separate emails.

*Disclaimer: The contest reward will be funded through ALR staff and we will select a winner based on staff votes. We also reserve the right not to select a winner for any of the following reasons or others that may arise: not enough submissions, candidates misinterpreted the prompt, submission lacks clarity, there is a stalemate in the voting process, etc.
