    JournalStone’s 2011 Short Story Contest

    Get your short story published in an anthology.

    JournalStone is holding its second short story contest and is now accepting submissions for its upcoming 2011 horror anthology publication. The top 10-15 submissions will be chosen for publication. Submissions should be proof-read, edited and in the final format.

    All cover art, layout, publication costs, formatting etc., will be JournalStone’s responsibility. As a writer, your only responsibility is submitting your short story.

    The top three overall winning entries will be paid 5 cents per word for their submission. In addition to the top three overall winners, 2 submissions from each category will be chosen for publication. They will be published, but there is no prize money beyond the top three overall winners, so make sure your entry is one of the winning titles.

    Genre: Horror, Science Fiction, Paranormal, Fantasy and YA are the five categories. The top two submissions will be chosen from each category. If you have any questions on content please send an e-mail to joel@journalstone.com. Four entries are required to validate a genre. If a specific genre fails to qualify, stories from other genres will be considered.

    Word Count: Approximately 6,000 to 12,000 words. If your story deviates from these guidelines, please contact JournalStone by emailing joel@journalstone.com.

    Submission Deadline: All submissions must be received no later than 11 p.m. Pacific time Sept. 16, 2011. JournalStone highly recommends you submit your work early.

    Submission Heading: You must include JS 2011 Short Story in the subject line of your submission to ensure receipt. Otherwise it could get shuffled aside and not read as part of the contest.

    Theme: All submitted stories must include some reference to or an overall theme surrounding both of these two ideas/topics: (90 minutes to live, a lock of hair).

    Judging categories are: Originality, Style, Characters, Dialogue, Editing and Judges’ impression.

    To submit your work, please send in a Microsoft Word document in Times New Roman 12-point font to joel@journalstone.com with JS 2011 Short Story in the subject line.
