Stanford Magazine> Fiction Contest
OUR TENTH ANNUAL CONTEST is open to alumni of Stanford undergraduate, graduate and fellowship programs. Submit double-spaced, typed, unpublished manuscripts of 2,500 words or fewer. Include a cover sheet with name, address, phone number and story title. The first-place winner will receive $750, and the story will be published next spring.
