Writing Contest — Glimmer Train

Posted on February 2, 2011


Glimmer Train has another short story award for writers. If you’re interested,  read more, visit the site for rules and submit a manuscript for consideration.


Upcoming deadline:

The February Short Story Award for New Writers closes February 28. See guidelines.

This category is open only to writers whose fiction has not appeared in any print publication with a circulation over 5,000. First place wins $1,200 and publication in Issue 83 of Glimmer Train Stories. second- and third-place winners receive $500/$300 (or if chosen for publication, $700).

From the beginning, Glimmer Train has welcomed the work of emerging writers, and we are proud to present and preserve the very best in Glimmer Train Stories, a handsome print publication. In the brand-new Best American Short Stories, of the top “100 distinguished short stories,” six appeared in Glimmer Train Stories, second only to the New Yorker. We are pleased to say that, of those six, two were those authors’ first stories accepted for publication.
