Tennessee Williams Short Story Contest
3-December to 8-March from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM
In celebrating Tennessee Williams’ Birthday, we are once again hosting our annual short story competition that is open to everyone. Your original story must reference ”The Women of Tennessee Williams”, which can be interpreted in an amorphous way, in order to be considered. Authors may choose to write a story about one of Williams’ characters, one of the actresses who played a role in one of his plays or films or a family member.
All interested writers are invited to submit their short story of 1500 to 4000 words before the March 8, 2020 deadline.
Submission is limited to one short story per person. The first place winner will be awarded $200 and the second place winner $100. The winners will be honored and asked to read a short excerpt from their short story at the March 26, 2020, Birthday Reception from 5:30-7:00p.m. at the Tennessee Williams Museum, 513 Truman Avenue.
Three published authors will judge the contest. The judges will receive blind copies of the short stories. With a sufficient number of outstanding submissions, there is the possibility of publication in an on-line journal. By submitting a short story, you acknowledge that the Key West Art & Historical Society/Tennessee Williams may publish the story online or in print, giving full credit to the author.
SHORT STORY WRITING CONTEST REGISTRATION AND SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MARCH 8, 2020.
