We’re pleased to announce the seventh annual Larry Brown Short Story Award.
Please read the guidelines carefully before submitting
The submitted story must be less than 4,000 words
No previously published work will be considered
The writer’s name and contact information should only appear within the cover letter box in Submittable; submissions will be judged blindly by our guest judge
Again, no identifying information should appear on the submitted manuscript pages
There’s a $10 entry fee for each story submission. A discounted submission category is open to BIPOC writers.
Writers can submit multiple entries; however, each entry must be submitted separately and each entry requires an entry fee and cover letter with an address and phone number
Simultaneous submissions are fine; however, please withdraw the story immediately if it’s accepted elsewhere
The winners and honorable mentions will be notified by December 15th, 2022, and the prize money will be awarded the day after publication on January 2nd, 2023
Those selected as honorable mentions will have the chance to be published alongside the winning selections in the January 2023 issue of Pithead Chapel
