Local Boy Makes Good




Here is something you should submit to:

Call For Submissions: Hemingway Shorts

The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park is pleased to announce a new and exciting venture which seeks to promote new creative writing, and is designed especially to capture new voices engaged in the creative writing process, in fiction. The series called HEMINGWAY SHORTS seeks to utilize impetus from the famous author toward sparking energized new interest in the writing craft, and, most importantly, to open the process to entirely new writers, especially those who have never before thought they might write publishable pieces of work. Help will be provided new authors in shaping their work for entry into this new and exciting venture. Since this publication dovetails with the International Hemingway conference being held in Oak Park this year, it is hoped that attendees will be encouraged to submit work.
Submission Guidelines:

Each applicant must submit their work electronically through the EHFOP website. Applicants are required to provide (a) submission title; (b) name of author; (c) address; (d) phone number; (e) e-mail.

Deadline for submissions is June 15, 2016, and submissions should not exceed 1500 words in length. Work must not be previously published.

Judging:
Judging of the submitted pieces will be done by a team composed of individuals who have held the prestigious title of Writer In Residence at the Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park, with the Writer-In-Residence at the EHFOP for this year, David Berner, serving as Chair. A member of the EHFOP Board will also be a member of the group.

Publication:
Submissions deemed to have met the standards set by the judges will be selected for publication in the first edition of this new on-line/ paper journal HEMINGWAY SHORTS, with publication date to coincide with the Hemingway Birthday celebrations on July 23, 2016 at the Oak Park Public Library.

Monetary Award:
A monetary award of $500.00 will attach to the entry judged the best among the submissions for HEMINGWAY SHORTS.
