Call for Submissions
Pulp Asylum Fiction Contest

I am looking for drabbles for this contest.  A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words, no more and no less.  Do not count the title or your byline, just the body of the text itself.  Entries not meeting the 100-word requirement will not be considered.  Keep the following guidelines in mind:

— The theme for this contest is rebirth/renewal.   Your entry should connect with this theme in some way.  For this contest,  I will be considering drabbles that fall into the following genres: crime, mystery, horror, suspense,  fantasy, science fiction, western, or just plain weird.

— No reprints.  Previously unpublished work only.

— No multiple or simultaneous submissions, please.

— Submit via email as a .doc or .pdf attachment to [email protected].  Your subject line should be DRABBLE CONTEST [your name, “your story title”].  Treat the body of your email as your cover letter.  No need to sweat the cover: keep it informal and brief–-just a bit about yourself.

— Submission deadline: end of the day Wednesday May 15th, 2024.

— Responses will be sent between May 16th and June 1st, 2024.

— The winning author will receive $10 US (payable via PayPal only) plus a copy of Pulp Asylum’s first novella, When Harry Comes to Call, due out June 1st, 2024.  Plus, of course, bragging rights and the happy glow of victory.

​– The winning drabble will be published at the Pulp Asylum site in mid-June 2024 (date subject to change depending on scheduling and production needs).
