Good Morning Monsters! I hope you all have an amazing day planned!
I am so excited to announce the first ever Plot Monster Writing Contest! This month Plot Monster is officially one year old. In honor of this awesome milestone I am hosting a short story contest.
So, first the rules:
- Each entry must be 3,000 words or less.
Okay. You can go a little over 3,000. Don’t cut your story off just to meet this requirement. We’re not counting words. HOWEVER, if you send in 10 pages single-spaced, we will know you didn’t even try to meet this requirement. (3,000 words is approximately 6 pages single-spaced.)
- You may enter more than one submission.
- The contest is open to contestants within the U.S and international contestants as well.
- You must put your country of origin on the submission.
This is a must to ensure that you receive the appropriate prize.
- You must be the author of your submission.
Don’t enter someone else’s work. If they want to enter, they can. It’s free.
- Entries must be original stories that have not been published elsewhere.
If you published on your blog, social media, or self-publish and want to enter your work, you may. However, if it has been traditionally published elsewhere it is NOT eligible for this contest – but congrats on having it published!!
- No genre requirements EXCEPT entries may not contain scenes with graphic sexual content.
None, zip, nada.
