Call for Entries: 2010 Memphis Magazine Fiction Contest



It's that time again. Time to hit "Save" and mail that short story of yours to Memphis magazine's annual fiction contest. And maybe it's time you won a grand prize of $1,000. (Two honorable mention awards of $500 each if quality warrants.)

Entries must be postmarked by August 1st, and stories should run between 3,000 and 4,500 words (double-spaced on pages that are unstapled and numbered). And no, your story (or stories: multiple submissions permitted) need not have a Memphis or Southern theme, but authors must live within a 150-mile radius of Memphis.

Mail manuscripts (along with your name, address, phone number, and the title of your story on a separate sheet of paper), along with a $10 entry fee per story submitted, to Fiction Contest, c/o Memphis magazine, P.O. Box 1738, Memphis TN 38101. No stories by fax or e-mail, please.
