Fiction contest for college undergrads: SUNY Stony Brook

Eligibility:
Only undergraduates enrolled full time in United States and Canadian universities and colleges for the academic year 2012-13 are eligible. This Prize has traditionally encouraged submissions from students with an Asian background, but we urge all students to enter.

Guidelines:

  • Entrant’s identity and academic institution will not be revealed to judges.
  • Submissions of no more than 7,500 words should be typed on 8.5-by-11-inch paper.
  • Include one cover sheet with the title of the work only. On a second cover sheet, include your name, permanent address, telephone number and email address. Do not include your name on any pages of your story.
  • All entries must be accompanied by proof of current undergraduate enrollment, such as a photocopy of a grade transcript, a class schedule or payment receipt showing your full-time status.
  • The institution’s name and address must be clear. No fax or electronic submissions will be accepted.
  • Manuscripts will not be returned. Submission assumes the right of Stony Brook to publish the winning story on its Web site.
  • The winning short story will automatically be considered for publication in The Southampton Review, the literary journal published by the Stony Brook Southampton MFA program in Writing and Literature.

Deadline:
March 1, 2013. All applications postmarked after the deadline will be returned unopened. The winner and runners-up will be notified in June 2013.
