FWA Collection Contest Accepting Submissions through April 30th

Every year, the Florida Writers Association publishes a collection of sixty short stories written by FWA members. The stories are selected through a judging process known as the FWA Collection Contest.

FWA COLLECTION #7- Revisions, Stories of Starting Over


Deadline for submissions: April 30th.

This year's theme is Revisions, Stories of Starting Over. More on that in the video below.

All FWA members can enter this contest for FREE. There are detailed instructions on how to properly format your entry that you'll want to follow to the letter. Find out exactly how to send in your submission by visiting the website at https://floridawriters.net/competitions-awards/collection/.

Note that they are accepting electronic submissions only.

WHY SHOULD I ENTER THIS CONTEST?


Good question! And there are several great answers for FWA members:

  • It's free!
  • All types of writing and genres are accepted (fiction, nonfic, poems)
  • Sharpen your writing skills with a word limit of 1,200 and poem line limit of 50
  • Practice your writing craft--the more you write, the better you get
  • If selected as one of the top sixty stories, your story will be published, and that's just one more (or maybe a first!) writing credit to add to your name
Still not convinced? Here's Marie Bostwick, the Person of Renown in this year's collection. Out of the sixty stories, she'll be selecting her top ten which will appear at the front of the book.
