Glimmer Train’s April Fiction Open is accepting fiction submissions between 3,000 and 20,000 words until midnight (PST) on April 30, 2017. This biannual opportunity is open to all writers and all subjects and themes. Unpublished novel excerpts are considered, provided they feel like complete stories. Up to four multiple submissions are also accepted. The reading fee for each submission is $21.
The first place winner will receive $3,000, publication in Glimmer Train Stories, and ten copies of that issue. The second and third place winners will receive $1,000 and $600, respectively. Results will be announced on July 1. For more information or to submit your work, visit the website at http://www.glimmertrain.com/pages/guidelines/fiction_open_guidelines.php.
