Theme and Submission Period
The contest theme is "Ruin and Renewal", to match our 30th issue, which launches on October 1, 2012. Though the contest and issue have a theme, we have a very liberal interpretation of the theme and encourage you first and foremost to submit your best work.
The contest submission period is January 15 to August 1, 2012. Winners will be announced on or before October 1, 2012.
A prize of $250 plus publication for the first-place winner will be awarded in each genre. Runners up in each genre will also receive publication.
