Contest Announcement #1

Glass Tower Press is opening a call for submissions for ENDINGS-THE DENOUEMENT, a writing competition for high school and college-age students (14-27).

Submissions wanted for ENDINGS-THE DENOUEMENT are works themed around “Endings,” the end of something old with the element of something else beginning. All fiction should be innovative and interesting. Possible genres include light fantasy, thriller, and horror. Glass Tower Press would prefer short story submissions between 1,500 words and 4,000 words, although 1-page submissions of poetry will also be considered.

To submit to the contest, please include a cover letter and one copy of the work. The text of the submission should be in 12-point Times New Roman font, double-spaced, with 1-inch margins. The deadline to submit to the ENDINGS-THE DENOUEMENT contest is 31 March 2011.

Entry fees are $5 for the first work and $2 for all additional works. Fee payments accepted by check only. Works must be submitted at the same time to receive entry fee discount for additional works. Monetary and merchandise prizes will be awarded to First, Second, and Third Place contest winners. Runners-up (up to 5) will receive one Glass Tower Press title. Honorable mentions (up to 7) will receive a certificate. All winners will have the chance to be published in the ENDINGS-THE DENOUEMENT collection, scheduled for release in late 2012.
