The Great Lake Drabble Contest #15

The Contest Theme: Treasure Hunt

We are looking for non-traditional treasures, a search that finds something unanticipated, of value. For example, in “Skylark of Space,” the civilization values salt above gold, and the people are not above melting down humans to recover the salt in their bodies.

The Contest Theme

“Treasure Hunt”

Publishing Details

Drabble Contests are edited by  Terrie Leigh Relf

Taking Submissions: Sub-Q Game Jam Flash Fiction “Love”

Deadline: December 15th, 2018
Payment: Original: $0.06 USD/word for prose; $0.03 USD/word for interactivity ($0.09 USD/word for both) Reprints: $0.03 USD/word for prose; $0.015 USD/word for interactivity (0.045 USD/word)

As we announced last month, from November 15 to December 15, we’ll be hosting a game jam open to very short pieces of interactive fiction or sequential art on the theme of love. We’ll also be accepting submissions for interactive fiction proposals through our Submittable portal for authors new to the idea of interactive fiction.

The catch? All those submissions must be limited to 1000 words of prose, or 9 panels, put before the player. (Full rules and conditions can be found at either of the links above.)

Altogether, we’ll choose four pieces from four different author/artist/developers to run in our February 2019 issue at our standard rates.

Since today is November 15th, that game jam and the submission window for proposals are officially open! Both will close for entries at the end of the day (Pacific Time) on December 15th, and we hope to be able to make our final selections by early January.

Links for both the game jam and the proposal submission window are above, or you can click through below!

Our February issue will also feature a 1000-word-or-less game on the theme of “love” from two invited authors, to complement the entries we accept from the game jam and the proposal submission window. Those authors will be announced soon!

Excited yet? We know we are! We can’t wait to dive in to all the submitted games and proposals.
