The Scribes Prize is open for fiction and creative nonfiction submissions from May 1-September 1.

Prizes include publication, award seals, and $250 for gold, $125 for silver, $60 for bronze, and 15 honorable mentions for $20.

Limit 3 entries per author. Simultaneous submission & reprints are welcome.

​All winners and honorable mentions will be published October 15, 2023 in Scribes*MICRO*Fiction’s 29th issue and have a full page bio, photograph, and interview listed on our Authors page. In addition, they will receive digital award seals that they may use on their websites and social media to announce their contest placement.

For submitters who aren’t chosen as the top 18, we might extend an offer of publication to especially notable stories. You are absolutely NOT required to accept our offer of publication if you do not place in the contest. For more info, here are the regular submission guidelines for our magazine.

All submissions, whether they are chosen to win the top prizes or not, will receive 1-2 sentences of feedback from our first round judges.
