Writing tip Wednesday: “Fiction open”

Glimmer Train’s Fiction Open

Deadline: January 2, 2016

Glimmer Train

Glimmer Train


  • 1st place wins $2,500 and is presented in Glimmer Train Stories.
  • 2nd place wins $1,000 and possible publication.
  • 3rd place wins $600, or, if chosen for publication, $700.

Other considerations:

  • Open to all subjects, all themes, and every writer. (Over the last two years, 50% of the winning stories were their authors’ 1st publications!)
  • Word count: Most submissions to the Fiction Open run 2,000 to 8,000 words, but from 2,000 to 20,000-word stories are fine.
    (Writing Guidelines, link below.)
  • Reading fee is $21 per story. Winners and finalists will be officially announced in the March 1 bulletin, and contacted directly the previous week.
  • Simultaneous submissions are okay. Please notify immediately if your submission is accepted elsewhere.
