And then there were 10

AC Short Story Contest Update

The ten finalists for our 20th annual Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest have been selected and contacted.

If you haven't heard from us, that means your story didn't advance this year. But hey: The final count was 568 submissions and – we're not blowing smoke here – that means a lot of really good stories didn't make the final cut. Try us again next year. (We typically open for submissions in October.)

Curious about what did make the cut? All the finalists will be recognized at a shindig – free and open to the public – at BookPeople on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 7pm. Now we're keeping our lips sealed until then on which finalists won prizes, so if you want to see a bunch of writers sweating it out – in addition to hearing some terrific prose read aloud by said sweaty writers – best save the date now.
