Motivational Monday! 404 Words New Years Contest


Can you write a short story at or under 404 words?

This week we're featuring 404 Words' New Years Short Story Contest!

This competition is a bit different with a much shorter word count, which I think is a nice little challenge. It doesn't have a huge prize pot but it does also offer publication on their website and possibly on youtube which is great for those looking to get their foot in the door.
So, this competition is for an original short story up to 404 words long. There is no set theme or genre so any is accepted.
The only rules are that you must be over 18 and your story must be original, unpublished, and written in English.

The winning story for this competition will recieve $50 as well as publication on the 404 Words' website.
Each story accepted for the competition will also be published on the website and some will be professionally narrated and published on 404 Words' youtube channel.

You may submit your story online through Submittable for consideration by a blind judging system. There is no submission fee for this competition,

Please note that the closing date is the 31st of December 2016 and that if your story is over the 404 word limit it will be automatically disqualified.
Each entrant can submit up to three stories.

Please remember to check the website for formatting guidelines and more information, sadly many great stories, poems and literary works are disqualified in many competitions simply because the writer did not use the desired formatting, don't let your work be one them!

To read the rules, find out more and to enter please visit 404 Words New Years Contest!

Happy Writing & Good Luck
