Short Fiction Contest for Emerging Writers

Boulevard strives to publish only the finest in fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. While we frequently publish writers with previous credits, we are very interested in less experienced or unpublished writers with exceptional promise. If you have practiced your craft and your work is the best it can be, send it to Boulevard.

$1,500 and publication in Boulevard awarded to the winning story by a writer who has not yet published a book of fiction, poetry, or creative non-fiction with a nationally distributed press.

We are happy to announce that the winning story of the 2018 Fiction Contest for Emerging Writers is “Lost Gun, $1000 Reward, No Questions” by Claire Boyles.

Congratulations also to our runner-up, “Shirley” by Hannah Williams.

DEADLINE for submissions on December 31, 2019.

Rules:

All entries must be postmarked by December 31, 2019 or submitted online by midnight CT.

Entry fee is $16 for each individual story, with no limit per author, and includes a one-year subscription. Make checks payable to Boulevard.

Author’s name, address, and telephone number, in addition to the story’s title and “Boulevard Emerging Writers Contest,” should appear on page one.

Manuscripts should be typed and double spaced.

Cover sheets are not necessary.

No manuscripts will be returned.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but previously accepted or published work is ineligible.

We accept works up to 8,000 words.

All entries will be considered for publication and for payment at our regular rates.

Entries will be judged by the editors of Boulevard.

No one editorially or financially affiliated with Boulevard can enter the contest.

The winning story will be first announced on the website, traditionally during June, though occasionally earlier, and then published in the follow issue of Boulevard.

Send typed manuscript(s) to Boulevard Short Fiction Contest, 4125 Juniata St. B, St. Louis, MO 63116 or submit online.
