On The Premises

Posted by Randi on Friday, July 27, 2012

What they want:
On The Premises aims to promote newer and/or relatively unknown writers who can write what we feel are creative, compelling stories told in effective, uncluttered, and evocative prose. Entrants pay no fees, and winners receive cash prizes in addition to exposure through publication.

Your story MUST be based on the current contest premise. Please make the connection between your story and the contest premise obvious! The more obvious, the better. Your entry will lose points (seriously!) if we have to work hard to figure out how it uses the premise.

Length: 1,000-5,000 words
Prizes:  1st prize: $180; 2nd prize: $140; 3rd prize: $100; Honorable mention: $40
