Kenyon Review Short Fiction Contest – Deadline Feb 28th

The submissions period for the 2013 Short Fiction Contest is now open!

2013 Guidelines

The contest is open to all writers who have not yet published a book of fiction. Submissions must be 1200 words or fewer. There is no entry fee. Katharine Weber, the Richard L. Thomas Chair in Creative Writing at Kenyon College and author of five critically-acclaimed novels, including Triangle and True Confections, will be the final judge. The Kenyon Review will publish the winning short story in the Winter 2014 issue, and the author will be awarded a scholarship to attend the 2013 Writers Workshop, June 15th-22nd, in Gambier, Ohio. Additional info on the Writers Workshop is available here.

  1. Only recently was told about this competition (Kenyon review short fiction). Am I to assume that the deadline has passed and entries are closed? I would like an opportunity to enter, is there any chance of me being still able to do a submission.
