Bookkus Publishing is seeking very short fiction (250-1,500 words) for its fall competition. All entries should somehow address the theme of pregnancy and/or childhood. We want stories that inspire, warm your heart, make you laugh, and feel sincere about the trials, tribulations, and joys of being pregnant and having children. Stories from mothers, fathers, and siblings will give some great perspectives on our theme.
Since we believe that readers’ opinions matter, we will be inviting Bookkus readers to choose the winners! The best 61 short pieces (yes, 61!) will be published in a paperback and e-book compilation, available for purchase. The author of the top story (based on the number of votes received) will receive a $50 prize and a copy of the compilation; the remaining 60 winners will receive $10 and a copy of the compilation. Submissions are due by October 27, 2012. Voting will take place, via Facebook
, until November 17, 2012, when winners will be announced. People can vote on 3 stories per day, so they should keep coming back to help you win.
