The Glass Woman Prize – Ghost Story Contest

November 18, 2011

The Glass Woman Prize – Ghost Story Contest

Contest – Female Authors Only
Deadline: November 18th, 2011
Payment: $100 to the winner

An EXTRAORDINARY call for ghost stories with November 18, 2011 DEADline:

An anonymous flesh and blood patron of the arts has offered a $100 prize for a ghost story written by a woman.

Here is what she writes:

Ghosts are with us all year round and in this season of mists they call for particular attention. I leave the definition of “ghost story” up to the author and look forward to the many embodiments and disembodiments of this theme. Preferred length 1000 to 3000 words, but stories of any length may be submitted.

Unlike the current restricted submissions for the regular Glass Woman Prize, this ghost story prize call for submissions is open to all women writing in English. Please send your submission by email to [email protected] and–very important!–put “Ghost Story” in the subject line; paste your story into the body of an email (i.e. no attachments). One submission per author.

Simultaneous submissions and previously published stories are okay, but please mention that in your submission. The winning story will be offered non-obligatory publication on the Glass Woman Prize page. There is no reading fee.
