Dreamers Flash Fiction and Nonfiction Contest
Submit a fiction or nonfiction story of between 300 and 1000 words for your chance to win! The winner will receive $150 CAD and 2 print copies of the Dreamers magazine (1 print, 1 electronic).
In a flash story, it’s important to make every word count. Keep the idea of movement in mind and stay focused on propelling the story forward – concentrate on the hook, the climax, and the conclusion. And remember, although it's very short, it's still a story and as such, it should have all the standard elements of a story - plot, character, conflict, etc.
Submit 1 story per entry; enter as many times as you want.
The winning story will be published online and in print in our fall 2021 magazine!
We will select up to 3 honourable mentions (at the Editors sole discretion) that will be published online. Each runner-up will be paid our standard $20 CAD honorarium.
$12.50 USD (approximately $15.00 CAD). Entry fee includes Dreamers eMagazine Spring 2020 Edition.
