Who may enter
The competition is open to anyone.
Regulus Press invites you to enter the 2019 LITERARY TAXIDERMY SHORT STORY COMPETITION for your chance to win up to $500 in cash as well as publication in the next Literary Taxidermy Anthology. Last year’s competition was such a success, we’ve decided to come back for more! Don’t miss this opportunity to get your name in front of readers, and your work in front of literary professionals. The competition ends on June 4th, 2019.
To enter, you must produce an original story of up to 2500 words in any genre. The catch: We provide your opening and closing lines chosen from a classic work of literature. You provide the rest. This year’s literary taxidermy draws its opening and closing lines from Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. To participate, you must write your own short story that starts and ends with the same opening and closing lines as Ray Bradbury’s classic work.
USD $10 per entry
The author of the winning story in this year’s competition will receive a USD $500 cash prize and a complimentary copy of the forthcoming 2019 Literary Taxidermy Anthology; runners-up will receive a USD $50 cash prize; and both the winner and runners-up will be published in the forthcoming 2019 Literary Taxidermy Anthology. Honorable-mention authors will have their name included on a special page in the anthology.
