Applications are now open for the Owl Canyon Press Short Story Contest. Writers are invited to create and submit a short story consisting of 50 paragraphs. The contest provides the 1st and 20th paragraphs, and the short story writer crafts the rest. First prize is $3000, 2nd prize is $2000, and 3rd prize is $1000 with the winning short stories published in a short story anthology, as well as an invitation to give a public reading at Inkberry Books in Niwot, CO. The twenty-four (24) Finalists will also have their short stories included in this anthology. Owl Canyon Press provides paragraphs #1 and #20, and the writer creates the other 48 paragraphs (i.e., paragraphs 2-19 and 21-50) to complete the story. Their goal is to discover new and upcoming authors whose works stimulate the imagination. They have received grants from the Goethe-Institut as well as the Austrian Ministry of Education and Culture.
