Family Stories Short Story Contest – First Prize $1000!

Short Story Contest Family Stories

Free Short Story Writing Contest “Family Stories”

Maybe not every family does have its secrets, but they sure do have their stories! Fiction or nonfiction, we want to read yours. The short stories could be about your family in the past, your family in the future, an imaginary family, a family of ducks or a family of your friends.

Enter your short story about families in BookRix’s free writing contest “Family Stories” now. The story must relate to families in some way. Tell us your story and share it with other readers to win cash and fame. In addition to the cash prize, the contest winner will receive free proofreading and editing services (of up to 3,000 words), courtesy of Elite Editing.

Community Voting – December 21, 2009 to February 23, 2010

Sitting this one out? You can still help your fellow BookRixers by reading their contest books and voting for your favorite stories. Our readers choose the top ten stories, which will then be reviewed by our independent jury. You also could win prizes for voting — when you vote, you enter into a raffle to win Amazon vouchers worth $20.

      In the description for how to enter the contest, it says you must register your stories. So I read down at the bottom of the page “registration.” It is at the right hand-corner of the site. Click on that word. Then you can register for the site, free. I think that is how you register your stories. Good luck! Liz
