The Lascaux Prize in Short Fiction
The 2014 contest will open in the fall. Stories may be previously published or unpublished. Length should not exceed 10,000 words. Entry fee is $10, and authors may enter more than once. All genres and styles are welcome, but stories with a broad appeal are most likely to be recognized.
The editors will select a winner and nineteen additional finalists. The winner receives $1000 and publication in The Lascaux Review.
All twenty stories will appear in the 2015 edition of the Lascaux Prize Anthology.
Two copies of the anthology will be supplied to every writer appearing in it. The deadline for submission to the 2014 contest is 21 December 2014 (the winter solstice).
More contests to come, including poetry and 1000-word flash fiction. And in case you don’t know how to pronounce Lascaux, here are some subtle hints:
