On The Premises Short Story Contest (no fee)
The premise of OTP's short story contest #35 is "Multiples". One or more characters face a strange problem: There is supposed to be only one of something—but somehow, there is more than one! What's going on? That's what we want to find out, by reading your story.
Word limits: at least 1,000 words long, and no more than 5,000 words long.
DEADLINE: 11:59 PM Eastern Time, Friday, March 6, 2020
One entry per author. There is no fee for entering this contest. Winners receive between US$60 and US$220, and publication.
GENRE RULES: No children's fiction, no exploitative sex, no over-the-top grossout horror, and no stories that are obvious parodies of well-known fictional worlds/characters created by other authors.
