100-Word Contest

Event Details

The Writer encourages all of our readers to practice their craft and put their stories in front of the eyes of as many people as possible. Writing contests have always been a vital part of the writing world, giving writers the chance to have their work reviewed by editors and possibly published. Literary journals, universities and even The Writer regularly host writing competitions, helping authors gain exposure and hone their craft.

Our first-ever 100-Word contest is now live! Could you tell a complete story in just 100 words? Submit any genre – fiction OR nonfiction – to this brand-new contest for your chance to win $1,000 and publication in our magazine. But act soon: This one-of-a-kind competition ends on October 6.
