Contest: On The Premises #61

May 31

Deadline: May 31st, 2024
Prizes: $35 for first place, $25 for second, $15 for third
Theme: An everyday detail being key to your 25-50 word story

Premise: For this mini-contest, tell, show, or evoke a complete story between 25 and 50 words long in which a specific detail of something that would normally be trivial and uninteresting is in fact extremely important or interesting.

Deadline: Friday, May 31, 2024, 11:59 PM Eastern US time.

Length: Between 25 and 50 words.

Hyphenated Words: Words that are normally hyphenated, but generally considered one word, are considered one word for this contest. Examples: “Twenty-three”, “Jack-o-lantern”, and “Mother-in-law” are each one word. However, stringing a bunch of words together with hyphens for artistic effect will result in each connected word being counted separately. Example: “It was a get-out-of-my-way day.” That hyphenated phrase counts as five words.

Prizes: $35 for first place, $25 for second, $15 for third, all in US dollars. Honorable mentions get published but make no money. If international currency exchange fees are necessary to pay an author, that fee comes out of the mini-contest prize money.

Other Rules: One entry per author. There is no fee for entering this contest.

Via: On The Premises’ Submittable.
