“Nothing is so beautiful as spring…”
—Gerard Manley Hopkins, “Spring”
It’s finally springtime in Georgia, and we want to celebrate. Think you can write a winning story about spring? Then enter the “Hello Springtime” Writing Contest from the University of North Georgia Press.
The rules are simple:
- Story must involve the theme of spring
- Story must be 1,000 words or fewer
Email your short story to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:50 pm Sunday, March 31, 2019. Your story must be in a Microsoft Word document with the story title, author name, and total word count at the top of the document. All submission emails must be titled “Hello Springtime Story Contest.” If the email isn’t titled correctly, we won’t look at it. We’ll announce the winner early April.
The contest is open to anyone, but you must reside in the U.S. to be eligible to win the prize. We will contact the winner by email. The Press asks for permission to publish up to one paragraph of the winning stories to our blog. Authors retain full rights to their story. All entries are eligible for future resubmission when we put a call out for a literary anthology, with the winning entry given priority. By submitting your story, you agree to these terms and conditions.
Prize: The winner will receive one book of their choice published by the UNG Press.
We can’t wait to read your submissions. Best of luck!
