If you'd like to enter our monthly short story contests, check the short story contest forum and look for a thread with open submissions. There's usually one. Read the first post with the rules for that contest, including it's theme, word count requirements, and deadline.
How Are Entries Judged?
Entries are judged via a public vote that usually lasts for 1-2 weeks. If there's a tie there is typically run-off voting between the tied entries.
If it's a contest without a prize, it might be better suited as a writing prompt.
If you'd like a offer a prize, WF would have to act as a middle-man to ensure the contest is treated legitimately. If you're an organization that would like to sponsor a contest, contact us for more information.
