2012 Marguerite McGlinn Prize for Fiction

ATTENTION ALL OF MY TALENTED WRITER FRIENDS! (And the ones I haven’t made yet!) For the last two years, I have been working for Philadelphia Stories, a non-profit magazine that publishes fiction/poetry/essays/art of the Delaware Valley.

As the magazine’s Fiction Coordinator, I organize and send out stories to a team of readers during our annual Marguerite McGlinn Prize for Fiction contest.

The contest is open to all writers living in – or originally from – the United States. First prize includes $2,000, the winning story in the winter print and online publications of the magazine, and an invitation to an awards dinner in October. The reading fee for each submission is $10; all entrants will receive a one-year subscription to Philadelphia Stories!

The deadline is June 15th, so hurry and get those stories in! We accept previously unpublished works of fiction up to 8,000 words.

I am surrounded by lots of talent here on WordPress, so I would love to see names like Re or Edward Hotspur or Tony Powers (just to name a few) pop up on the submissions list. I could keep going, but there are just too many of you to name! (Fo’real!)

So if you write short stories, please check out the magazine and consider submitting.

Happy Tuesday!
