2019 CRAFT Short Fiction Prize

Guest Judge: Elizabeth McCracken

Thank you to all of our submitters who sent stories in for the contest! We are enjoying reading your work and can’t wait to share results with the world this summer.

Our plan:

All writers will be contacted by July 15 at the latest. We will have a longlist decided by early July. The shortlist of finalists will be sent to Elizabeth McCracken by July 15, with decisions made and winners announced by mid-August. The three winning stories will publish in September.

Entrants whose pieces are advancing will be contacted at each stage.
