24 Hour Short Story Contest
Writer's weekly offers a quarterly 24-hour short story contest. The next contest runs from Saturday, January 12th at noon (central time) through Sunday, January 13th noon (central time). Your $5.00 entry fee provides a PDF download containing rules and information. At noon on the day of the contest, Angela Hoy at Writer's Weekly will email the beginning sentences to expand upon and the maximum word count. Everything else about the story comes from you, the writer. After a final edit, make sure to upload your new creation to the correct link in time for verification before the deadline.
The top three winning entries win cash prizes from $200 to $300. Honorable mentions win a year-long Write Markets Report and an ebook. Another sixty entries can win door prizes, so the chances of winning something are pretty nice.
