$1,000 and publication in JuxtaProse Literary Magazine will be awarded to the winning story. Up to three additional stories, each by a different author, may be awarded "Honorable Mention" status, for which they will receive $100 and publication. All entries will be considered for publication, regardless of whether they receive honorable mention status. Manuscripts must not have been previously published in any form -- including any form of online publication -- in order to be eligible.
An entry fee of $15 applies. Entries should contain a single short story that is between 500 and 7,000 words. Any entry which falls outside of these word limits, or which contains more than one short story in a single entry, may be subject to disqualification. Authors may enter multiple times but will be charged a separate entry fee each time.
Winners, including the first prize winner and any honorable mentions, will be announced on or before 5:00 pm Mountain Time on December 10, 2018. JuxtaProse reserves the right to extend the contest deadline as necessary, so long as the winners are announced by this date.
Entries which do not abide by these submission guidelines may be subject to disqualification. All entry fees are non-refundable.
