The folks over at Rektor’s Revenge asked me to pass on notice of their short story contest. As always, I can’t guarantee the legitimacy of any requests for material appearing here, so do your research first. Today, your exercise is this: regardless of whether you plan to send in a submission, write a piece that would be appropriate to the call. Then, consider submitting it. If you do submit it, come back and let us know so we can cheer you on!
From their contest guidelines page:
First Prize: The First Place Winner receives $500.00.
Second Prize: The Second Place Winner receives $250.00.
Third Prize: The Third Place Winner receives $100.00.
Conciliation Prize: The Conciliation Winner receives $100.00.
The conciliation prize will be a random drawing from all the stories submitted with the exception of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners.
Plus: Via press release Mak Rektor Publishing will also be announcing the contest winners and will be showcasing all winners on our site.
