Raconteur’s 6-word story contest from June wes a huge success. First place went to Ayoyimika for, “She like Calibri, he uses Arial.”. This month we’re doubling the word count and doubling the prize pot. Submit your best 12-word story for a chance to win $100! As always, winners are selected by our panel of readers, themselves writers.
Send your very best 12-word story to [email protected] as a MS Word document by Aug 26th, 11:59PM Eastern Time.
Make sure the subject of your email reads “12 words”
We’re constantly reading submissions and we’ve become quite good at it. Your submission will be judged using our Raconteur Literary Magazine metrics – a system of readings, ratings, and reviews used to select the stories we publish in print.
Winners will be announced Aug 30th at noon Eastern Time.
