Ernest Hemingway Flash Fiction Prize



Address:

South Eugene Street 1664
Baton Rouge, LA 70808
US

Though many writers have helped to shape the history of flash fiction, Ernest Hemingway’s first short-story collection, In Our Time, easily makes him one of the form’s primary pioneers. For this reason, Fiction Southeast has chosen to honor his accomplishments through the Ernest Hemingway Flash Fiction Prize. Each year, a participating judge will select a winner (and three runners-up).

Entries for the Ernest Hemingway Flash Fiction Prize should be approximately 1000 words or less. Submissions should be in .rtf, .doc, or .pdf format. Feel free to submit multiple stories, but please DO NOT submit multiple Word documents as one submission or one text document containing multiple stories. Instead, please submit each story as a SEPARATE entry (so that you complete an individual submission process for each story). Simultaneous submissions ARE welcome.Contest will open annually in late August with a deadline of December 1st. Entry fee is $10. All entries will be considered for publication in Fiction Southeast.
