Short Story Contest

 The Library through its Local Author Program shows robust support for local writing by sponsoring the annual Local Author Showcase, now its 52nd year.  The Short Story Contest is a continuation of that support, organized to shine a spotlight on local writers who write short stories.  Most short stories remain unpublished due to the competitiveness of the business and the few rare opportunities offered by prestigious literary publications such as the New Yorker or Camera Obscura. Stories by authors who are not well known or firmly plugged in the literary scenes in New York or San Francisco rarely see the light of day.  For contest deadlines, rules and registration, click on Short Story Contest
