You all know how much I love short stories, right? Well, enough to have published two collections so far, Infinite Waters being the latest one.

I recently entered a new short story of mine in a competition organized by Almond Press. While on their Dystopian Stories site, I noticed they have this great page with all sorts of short story competitions, with prizes up to $14,000. Naturally, I had to share.

And if you’re looking to get your short story published, check with my publisher friend Dan Dombrowski: he’s looking for stories to include in the next issue of his excellent Nonlocal Science Fiction Magazine.

    1. Thanks. I’m not sure. Busy summer and it’s hard enough to keep up with what I have. Youngest son and daughter-in-law and 22 mo. old granddaughter moved back in town. It’s been a busy time, watching, playing, and letting that little one get to know us better.

  1. I will have to check this out. My son has been writing short stories, so I’ll pass it along to him, too. Thank you for posting.

    Enjoy the day!
