Our entry fee is $25. Each entrant receives a one-year subscription (three issues) to Story.

Please double-space your manuscript.

Multiple submissions and simultaneous submissions are welcome, but you must pay a separate fee for each entry and withdraw the piece immediately if accepted elsewhere.
