Entry Fee: No-Entry-Fee

Eligibility: Writers must 18-years of age or older, and short stories must be original and previously unpublished.

Theme or Prompt: “And we were hungry…,” or “Hunger.” For isn’t it, to quote the late Ray Bradbury, hunger or “lack that gives us inspiration?”

Grand Prize Theme: Consideration for the grand prize is reserved for stories that connect the theme with nature or the natural world.
