Hip Mama Fiction Contest
It's time to make something up! ~~~
For all of you beautiful liars out there- Hip Mama is gonna be breaking some fresh ground and doing a Short Story Contest judged by Kerlin Richter and Ariel Gore.
First Prize is $100, your Short Story as the feature in issue 44, the Creativity issue, along with a profile and picture of your brilliant self, AND a Lifetime Subscription to Hip Mama (we don't even sell lifetime subscriptions anymore).
Ten runners up will get a four issue subscription, their names and story titles in the zine and their full stories will be published online.
** what about?**
Write any short story you want. Just make sure there is a Mama in there somewhere. It can be any genre, any style, from any ol' point of view. The only rule for content is: There must be a Mama in the story.
** how long?**
Keep it under 2500 words.
** where to?**
The best way is to attach your story as a word document and e-mail it to
(replace (at) with @). In the subject line write 'Short Story Submission' and your name. Or
Mail it old school to P.O Box xxxxx, Portland OR 97212.
** how much?**
$25 per story entry fee, or splurge and for $60 and I will mail back your story with comments.
Say, what, Mama? Six-Oh-Clams for what? Your back wash on my fiction so you can line your pockets? If you treated the dear woman who gave birth to me that way, I'd seriously have to slap you. Not cool, hipster. Not cool.
