Updated Submission Call

Dear readers,

After some brainstorming, we have decided to change the fiction submission rule. To allow for the growing popularity of short-short fiction, we have now set the new word limit to 800-5000.

We hope this will suit for many of us Flash and Short fiction writers and readers.

We welcome your submissions. Check the official submission call for details.


Inaugural Contest with Cash Prizes

The Literary Nest is a labor of love for a struggling writer and a literary connoisseur, but I believe that the writers should be paid. The idea of this contest was born in that spirit. So here it goes.

The Literary Nest announces the Inaugural Writing Contest with cash prizes.

Fiction: 1,500-5,000 words
Poetry: 10-40 lines.

Please submit your entry with “Contest” in the subject line to by March15, 2015.

No erotica and nothing rated R or above.

One winning entry in each category will receive the cash prize of $10. The rest of the entries will be eligible for the publication.
