Segullah Journal Fiction Contest (for Latter-Day Saint Women)

Post date: 25 July 2011
Deadline: 31 December 2011

We welcome unpublished short-short stories as entries for our annual contest. Entries may address any subject in harmony with our mission statement. Entries should not exceed 3500 words. Entrants must be female members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The winner of the previous year’s fiction contest is ineligible to enter. Members of the staff and their families are ineligible to enter.

Entries are judged by Segullah editors. The winner receives the Segullah Award for Excellence in Fiction ($100). The winning essay, any honorable mentions, and other contest entries selected for publication will be featured in our Fall/Winter issue. The judges reserve the right to withhold the award if none of the entries merits it. All stories accepted for publication are subject to thorough revision under the guidance of an editor.
