TLT is calling out for submissions to our very first short story contest!! The TLT staff will choose the top 10 stories to be published in an anthology. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go to support the relief efforts in Japan.
- Our theme is “new beginnings,” in honor of our charity. YOU choose the genre- horror, fantasy, romance, etc. We’re looking for creativity and unique incorporations of the theme.
- We are seeking original entries that are between 15 and 20 pages long. Double-spaced. Times New Roman. Include your contact information (name, email and mailing address), as well as a short autobiography. Make this fun- if your story is chosen for publication, your bio will also be printed. It should be no more than one paragraph (6-10 lines).
- Please submit a polished, final copy of your piece. Have family and friends edit your story, because all work will be published as is.Submissions should be written in a Word document and sent as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org . Write “Short Story Contest” in the subject line.
- All entries will receive a TLT bookmark and will be notified when the winners have been selected.
- Contest runs until June 1st. Top stories will be selected by the TLT team by the middle of June.
- Author of the best story will have his or her story posted on TLT blog and will receive free autographed copies of every book we publish until the end of 2011.
- Authors of the top 10 stories will receive a complimentary copy of the anthology and recognition on the TLT website.
- Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to help fund the relief efforts in Japan. All content, upon submission, can be distributed and used for promotional purposes by TLT without author permission or compensation.
