Short Story Contest & Call | AndWeWereHungry, New LitMag

Postby AndWeWereHungry » Tue Jan 08, 2013 9:21 pm

AndWeWereHungry, a new online literary magazine for art & prose, is delighted to announce our inaugural short fiction contest! Four winning authors shall share a prize fund of $5,000, thanks to the generous support of "Ashes and Snow" artist Gregory Colbert ( We also seek other prose (flash fiction, literary nonfiction, poetry, & essay), photography and visual artwork to feature in our themed quarterly issues (more than a 1000 words) and on our homepage's weekly non-themed features section (up to a 1000 words). The submission theme or creative prompt for our debut issue is "...and we were hungry," for after all haven't we all been hungry for so many things? And isn't it, in the words of Ray Bradbury, lack that gives us inspiration? We encourage you to interpret our debut issue theme freely, though consideration for the fiction contest's top cash prize of $2,000 is reserved for short stories that connect the theme with nature. Submission deadline for publication in our debut issue is March 31, 2013. For more about AndWeWereHungry, our Gregory Colbert-sponsored short story contest, our debut issue theme and the themes & deadlines for future issues visit While there are no contest entry or submissions reading fees, we are not a paying market at this time.
