We seek original fiction from undergraduate students and offer a prize of $1000 for a story that stirs, shifts, or shakes us in some way. Out of our desire to keep this contest accessible to all, we do not charge a fee for submissions. We also ensure that judges read stories blindly, without knowledge of the entrant’s identity or academic institution, because what matters to us fundamentally, is the work itself.
Submissions open March 11 and the deadline to submit is May 25, 2017. Read more about the contest at: www.stonybrook.edu/fictionprize .
