This week we're featuring the Howard Frank Mosher Short Fiction Prize, which is run through Hunger Mountain, a journal for the arts.

'Send us your best work! We are looking for stories that linger, stories that grab us in our seats and shake us, stories that branch away from the cliché and grow deep roots of originality.'

Your story can be up to 10,000 words in length - so you've got a lot of words to play with! It must be your own work, original and previously unpublished.

You can enter more than one story but each entry will need to be sent separately by either email or post and will need it's own entry fee of $20.

The closing date is the 1st of March so if you've got something you think might be suitable then get writing/editing! 

There will be one overall winner who will receive a $1,000 prize and publication in Hunger Mountain. There will also be two runners up who will each receive £100 and will be considered for publication.

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 Howard Frank Mosher Short Fiction Prize.

Happy Writing & Good Luck
