With tremendous gratitude and undying devotion to the Poetry Goddess herself, although she calls herself The Poetry Witch, The Literary Nest welcomes our poetry advisor Annie Finch.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
The website is under construction, so pardon the dust for now.
