The 30th of the month is the deadline for each topic. Authors of selected stories will be informed no later than the end of the following month, with a proposed date of publication and accompanying contract.
- Be sure to put the month’s short story topic in the subject header of your email so it goes to the correct curator for your category.
- Enter as many times as you’d like! By entering you’re verifying you have first publication rights and full ownership of your story.
As many as four stories a month may be chosen. If your story is one of the selected pieces, you’ll be provided with a proof/polishing edit, a signup sheet for showcase/interview and list of instructions for ad space and registration.
Selected stories will also be eligible for a fair-trade short story publication anthology released by BlissQuest Publishing.
What is a fair trade anthology?
BlissQuest Publishing will be offering selected short stories the option of appearing in a published collection of short stories to promote the fair trade publishing model.
To showcase the fair trade publishing model, BlissQuest will cover the cost of production; then split the net profits earned from the anthology sales evenly between the many authors and the house. This anthology will be sold with limited print options, and full digital distribution.
We look forward to reading your stories, and sharing the adventure with you!
