Unfortunately, the submission period has closed for the 2018 Literary Taxidermy Short Story Competition. However, if the competition interests you — and why shouldn't it! — we suggest you subscribe to our mailing list. We'll send you news of future competitions, as well as competition updates and reminders (and NO SPAM).

If you've already sent us your work for the 2018 Literary Taxidermy Short Story Competition, thank you! We can't wait to read what you've stitched together.

Oh, and if you haven't already, please consider paying the voluntary entry fee. You don't have to pay it — it is voluntary — and we totally understand if you have a significant financial hardship that makes paying the $10 entry fee too burdensome, or even if there’s some other reason that would make the fee unreasonable. But if you're feeling generous, well-off, flush, sympathetic to artistic endeavors, unusually affluent, or just in a good mood, enter your email address in the field below and then click the Paypal link. (Note: You don't need to have a Paypal account to complete this transaction.)
