Submit up to three short short stories with a $15 reading fee. Each short-short should be no more than 500 words. Include your name and contact information on a very brief cover letter. Your name should also appear on the first page of each story submitted. Robert Olen Butler will judge. One winner will be chosen and awarded $500. The winner and nine finalists will be published in early 2009. Label envelope: WBSSSC.
All submissions must be typed and accompanied by a cover letter with contact information. The fee for The WBSSSC is $15 (US) per submission (up to 3 short shorts). Make checks or money orders payable to The Southeast Review. Postmark deadline: March 1, 2008.
Friends and current or former students of the judge and those who have been affiliated with Florida State University within the last five years are ineligible.
It is not necessary to send an SASE. Winners will be announced on the website in late spring. Please note the importance of including your contact information in a brief cover letter; all contestants will receive the issue in which the winning submissions appear.
