JUDGE: Siobhan Fallon
$250 Honorarium and Publication
SUBMIT: July 1, 2017 – September 15, 2017
The fiction contest is open to women and those identifying as women. Contest entries from all others will not be read.
The contest fee is non-refundable.
Entries must capture the nuances of the cultures and consequences of war; the topic is not limited to military matters, but includes social, political and cultural subjects.
All entries will be considered for publication. All entries will be considered anonymously. Your name should NOT appear anywhere on the story itself. Entries must be submitted online, and a non-refundable $10 entry fee is payable through PayPal.
Send no more than one story. CONSEQUENCE will not consider work from anyone currently or recently (within the past 2 years) affiliated with the prize judge. (Previous judges have included Anne Germanacos, Jesse Goolsby, and Hester Kaplan.) Each story must not exceed 15 double-spaced pages in 12-point font. Previously published works (print and electronic) and works accepted for publication elsewhere cannot be considered. Stories that do not meet submissions requirements will be disqualified. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but the contest fee is non-refundable if the submission is withdrawn. Please notify the editors as soon as possible if a submitted story is accepted elsewhere.
