The Breakwater Fiction Contest

Event Details

“I think to really be an artist, to really inhabit that, you have to accept on some level that you are not going to belong. Being an outsider, for instance, can be like being an observer…I just had to tell myself that one day, being on the periphery would become an asset (and I think it finally has, as a creative adult).” Porochista Khakpour

We are seeking submissions for pieces that breathe freshness to the form. We are interested in previously unpublished prose ranging from 1,000 – 4,000 words, each with a $10 entry fee. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify Breakwater if submission is accepted elsewhere.
