For those of you looking for a new market for your short stories, why not try The Writer’s ‘Two Roads Diverge’ Short Story Contest?
They have this to say about it: ‘Write a 2,000-word short story responding to one or both quotes by novelist and short story writer Colum McCann (and perhaps keep in mind Robert Frost’s poem “A Road Not Taken”). What elements of duality and divergence can you include: duplicitous acts, binary oppositions, communication with the “other side,” double indemnity, twins? Let your imagination riff on taking a plot, character, setting or theme in two directions’.
The entry fee is $25 and the prizes are as follows:
First place: $1,000 and publication in the March 2016 issue of ‘The Writer’.
Second place: $500 and publication on writermag.com.
Third place: $250 and publication on writermag.com.
The closing date is 6th December 2015
