Accepting Submissions: Short Story Contest

SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED. Thank you to all those who participated.

It’s that time of year! The holiday season is in full swing. NaNoWriMo is underway. Us writers are writing and shopping and cleaning and just trying to stay afloat and TLF is accepting submissions for our short story contest!

With the holidays around the corner, many are thinking about loved ones—those they’ve lost and those they’ve managed to hang onto. It’s the time of year when no one wants to be alone. It’s the time when trespasses are forgiven and bonds are made tighter between friends and family. That’s why our theme for this contest is Romance.

Tell us your best romantic story between 2,000 and 5,000 words. It can be heartbreaking or uplifting, from the past or in the future, or even a little bit of everything, as long as it falls into the Romantic genre.
