Deadline Nears for Anton Chekhov Award for Flash Fiction

Writers have until the end of the month to submit to LitMag’s 2023 Anton Chekhov Award for Flash Fiction. Offered annually, the award comes with a prize of $1,250, publication in LitMag, and an introduction to agents from the Bent Agency, Brandt & Hochman, Folio Literary Management, InkWell Management, Sobel Weber Associates, and Triangle House Literary, who will review the winner’s work.

Using only the online submission system, submit a story of 500 to 1,500 words with a $16 entry fee by November 30. All entries are considered for publication. The editors will judge. Visit the website for complete guidelines.

The 2022 winner of the contest was Caroline Kim for “The End of the Dynasty.” Finalists included Jared Carlson for “Invention,” William Hawkins for “Easter Morning,” and Delano S. C. Parisi for “The Immortal Ontologist in the Apocalypse,” which was published by LitMag.

An annual print journal released each fall, LitMag features established and emerging writers of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. LitMag also publishes writing on its website. “We seek work that moves and amazes us,” the editors say. “We are drawn to big minds and large hearts.”
