One Week Until the Contest Reading Period Opens

As of today there’s only one week to go until the Friends of the Merril Short Story Contest reading period opens on November 15th.

Once the contest officially opens we will activate the PayPal Entry Fee button and all entrants can begin submitting their stories.

If you want to take some extra time after the reading period opens to make sure your submission(s) are honed to a razor edge you’ve got three months to do so. The reading period will be open from November 15th, 2011 through February 15, 2012. But please don’t leave your submissions too late as we can’t accept anything submitted after 11:59 p.m. EST on February 15th, 2012. For hard copy submissions we need to have received your submission by February 15th, 2012, so we suggest you mail it at least a week sooner to make sure it gets to us in time.

If you have any questions to ask before the reading period begins, or during the open reading period, please query Michael Matheson at

Also, please be sure that you’ve read through the Contest Rules and FAQ pages to be sure that there are no problems when you submit your entry.

We look forward immensely to the submissions coming in, and we wish you all good luck!
